Adam Verner's powerful characterizations and masterful performance transport listeners to medieval Britain as he narrates the legendary story of Friar Tuck and Robin Hood—with a twist. Rhi Bran is forced to masquerade as King Raven, aka Robin Hood, to elude the treacherous Abbot Hugo and Sheriff de Glanville. In doing so, he brings hope to the oppressed people of Wales and strikes terror in the hearts of the Norman invaders. Sound effects—the clashes of armor and swords, bloodcurdling screams, and horse's frightened snorts—all lend authenticity. Verner portrays short, stout Friar Tuck's witticisms—subtly humorous; his advice—wise beyond measure; his prayers—often answered; and his faithfulness to Robin—unwavering. Immersed in Celtic mythology, political intrigue, and exciting battle scenes and filled with memorable characters, TUCK is an unforgettable heroic tale.
