A mysterious man buys Jingo from the cruel mistress of the orphanage and takes him from Boston to Mexico in a race for treasure. The time is the mid-1800's, and the cast is almost fantastical: ruffians, gypsies, hard-drinking horse racers and, above all, the remarkable person who becomes known to Jingo Django as Mr. Peacock-Hancock-Jones. Dufris is a joy to listen to with his command of Fleischman's rollicking language and his own amazing capacity for varied voicings. Intelligent and artful, the words roll out true to emotional pitch and brimful of humor. There's no laughter in the person who doesn't get at least a chuckle with this one!
