As Terry Bregy reads beyond the first few sentences every schoolchild has memorized in the Declaration of Independence, the listener will realize that this production is something special. Bregy's tone is as measured, reasonable, and firm as the Declaration itself, and his reading highlights the beauty of its words and ideas. His reading of the Constitution and Bill of Rights are equally well done, although these documents are more about practical matters than ideals and are not nearly as fun to listen to. Sam Fink provides short introductions to each document, giving listeners just enough background to transition while still letting the documents themselves take center stage. This recording will be welcomed by teachers, students, and history buffs.

Sam Fink is an original. A multi-talented artist of inimitable range, Sam first learned to hand-letter from his father. After marrying his lovely wife Adele, they raised two sons while he studied at the National Academy and the Art Students' League.

Later, he taught his craft at the Pratt Institute and made professional contributions to the Lands' End catalog.
For the past twenty-plus years, Sam has both educated and entertained adults and children with his vibrantly illustrated texts of American history. He celebrated his 90th birthday in 2006 with the release of "The Constitution of the United States of America" (Welcome Books) to great acclaim.
