Born in Philadelphia's Walnut Street Theater in 1849, George Berrell died in 1933, after a life he often described as one of growing up with the country. His travels of self-discovery and those of his life on the stage are illustrative of a nation moving from travel on foot and horseback to that of automobiles and Boeing's first major airliner, the 247. Berrell saw it all and performed on stages from early Deadwood to St. Louis and Chicago and all points in between. Torn between his affection for John Wilkes Booth and the actress Catherine Terrell, pursued by Miranda Ives, the daughter of a primitive preacher, one of Quantrill's Raiders who proclaimed that he was destined for her, Berrell's personal and theatrical life spanned the continent, ending in the motion pictures where in 1917 he appeared in John Ford's first full-length western, "Straight Shooting. " Based on Berrell's memoir, 'Shadows and Acts' is the story of a large chunk of American history as seen through one man's eyes.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
