Studs Terkel is ninety four years old now, and will be ninety five soon. He is a living legend, an American treasure. I have read many of his books and enjoyed them. It is a most enjoyable way to learn history. We learn it through the middle man Studs' ability to draw his guests out on subjects they know by having lived it.

If you have not read Studs Terkel, and you love history, you are missing a valuable resource.

Check out his web site and listen to a large sample of the interviews.
