A swashbuckler of a tale! A great choice for a reluctant reader or anyone who enjoys a good adventure yarn. Especially recommended for fathers and sons listening together. Although this is the third in the series about 17-year-old John Spencer's romance with the sea, it's not necessary to have read the first two. In 1803 John sets out on his first voyage to the West Indies on his father's ship. Along the way he encounters scalawags, old friends, heroic sailors, and one of the vilest villains to grace the high seas since Long John Silver. Ron Keith is a consummate professional. He recounts this story with drama and theatricality. This ornate and old-fashioned adventure calls for a lush interpretation, and Keith delivers. D.G.
