Good for a short car trip to PA

We listened to this short primer on the early history of Pennsylvania on our way from Maryland to Pennsylvania for vacation. It helped get us in the proper mindset to appreciate the state's history since we also planned to hit a few historical sites.
The audiobook is aimed at an general all ages group so it just covers the basics but isn't dumbed down. I also liked the narrator's deep rich voice and the story left us wanting a bit more.
