In 1906, at the age of 24, with only an eighth-grade education, Charley Hatfield discovered a way to make it rain. By mixing toxic chemicals in tall towers he could literally create the atmosphere to bring rain. He spent his lifetime fighting the naysayers, trying to convince government officials, and holding off high power corporations as he brought the rains more than 500 times throughout his life; and he never failed once. Based on the journals of Charley Hatfield and the family member who remembered him so well, The Rainmaker Chronicles takes you on a journey that will haunt you for the rest of your life. Every time you hear of drought or famine, or stand outside in a steady rain, you will think of Charley Hatfield and wonder if he is working his magic formula in the surrounding hills.

Bring Charlie back!!! When we need rain!!
Yes, easy to listen to. Reader's voice is so soft you feel like you are being read to, by your Mother, just before bedtime, as a kid.
Christopher does a fantastic narrating job with his tone and voice fluctuations. His accent lends itself well to the story. I almost felt like Charlie was telling us the story himself.
Got anxious a couple times as to the outcome. I did laugh a few times
