First published in 1963, this old-fashioned yarn introduces Praiseworthy, the butler, and Jack, his charge. During the California Gold Rush, these two adventurers travel from Boston and encounter a wide variety of mishaps on their voyage. Finally arriving in California, Jack and Praiseworthy find the rough-and-ready world of the '49ers quite different from Boston. They struggle to solve a host of troubles with humor, common sense, and good doses of luck. The full-cast recording is smooth, with narrator Willard Lape reading most of the story. His voice suggests a western tone, and the performances of Jack and Praiseworthy are appropriate. There are period music and songs at appropriate intervals.
