"The best recording of Snow-Bound..." (Library of America). Read by Michael Maglaras, John Greenleaf Whittier's Snow-Bound captures a sense of a special time and place. In the mid and late 19th century, the American poet John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892) was one of the most famous men in America. Snow-Bound recounts a New England blizzard from Whittier's childhood that isolated the young poet and his family in their Haverhill, Massachusetts home for nearly a week before a team of oxen could free them. As the fury of the blizzard rages outside, the family and their guests huddle before the great fireplace knowing they will soon be cut off from the outside world. Inspired in this intimate setting, they begin, one by one, to open their hearts. Each person tells a story from his or her life -- revealing a depth of experience and spirit -- all seen through the eyes of Whittier as a ten-year-old boy, and remembered by him as a mature man, in this masterpiece of American literature. This CD is Volume 1 of the Whittier Bicentennial Recording Project and features the music of Charles Ives. 2006.
