SHADOW COUNTRY by Peter Matthiessen (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). HONORS: 2008 National Book Award for Fiction, Publishers Weekly Listen Up Award 2009 Shadow Country is Peter Matthiessen’s epic re-imagining of E. J. Watson, the legendary outlaw of the wild Florida frontier, who relentlessly drove himself toward his own violent end at the hands of his neighbors. Originally broken into three novels, this new distillation brilliantly realizes the author’s original vision. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio's Audiofile Earphones and Audie® Award-winning narrator Tony Heald. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “[A] masterpiece...readers will be hooked by this magnificent listening experience.” (Publishers Weekly) •EXPERIENCE.

Watson, the Everglades sugarcane planter and notorious outlaw of the wild Florida frontier. Vividly capturing the American hinterlands at the turn of the twentieth century, it traces the story of Watson through eyewitness perspectives as he drives himself relentlessly toward his own violent end at the hands of neighbors who mostly admired him. Originally written as three separate, acclaimed novels, Shadow Country is Matthiessen’s bold new distillation of his monumental work. Tightened and brilliantly rewritten throughout, he has collapsed the time frame while deepening the insights and motivations of his characters, achieving his original vision of the Watson trilogy.
