Hearing about Buddha and Mohammed

This morning LibriVox.org posted a new recording that might be useful for Mr. Harris' Class at  ISOCS as they investigate beliefs.

LibriVox is a site which provides free audiobooks. "Volunteers record chapters of books in the public domain and release the audio files back onto the net. Our goal is to make all public domain books available as free audio books."

The recording of A Treasury of Heroes and Heroines by Clayton Edwards includes stories about two figures of interest to our students:  Buddha and Mohammed. Files can be listened to on your computer, or downloaded to an mp3 player. (Check their How to listen page if you need help.)
