This volume includes four of L'Amour's adventure stories (that is, non-Westerns). Narrator Jason Culp captures the souls of their tough, stoic protagonists. Whether we’re listening to Ponga Jim, a tough East Indies freighter captain, as he stows away on a ship, or to Mike Thorn as he evades Japanese soldiers on the Solomon Islands, or to a photographer as he converses philosophically with a goatherd, Culp enhances the characters' gritty determination, sense of fairness, and restless urge to travel. Culp also depicts the British and Portuguese characters who cross Ponga Jim's path. L'Amour fans and those who enjoy adventure stories set in dangerous and intriguing locales will enjoy this production. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
