Jim Hawkins, son of the proprietor of the Admiral Benbow Inn, is fascinated by a mysterious seaman who takes up lodging. The visitor's death leads to the discovery of a treasure map, setting Jim on the course that leads him to Long John Silver and the search for Captain Kidd's treasure. Michael Prichard reads this famous adventure story with the wistful quality of an adult looking back on a childhood adventure. The voices of pirates live up to the clichés--many of which were set by this yarn--but Prichard gives Silver a touch of humanity. Listeners who enjoyed PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN might check out this original pirate tale. J.A.S.
