Narrator Grover Gardner's old-fashioned cowpoke charm is a perfect choice for this turn-of-the-century adventure story. Listeners will find that Gardner's consistent pace and modest twang deliver well through the entire journey, much like a reliable cow horse across the plains—or, as in this case, a camel across the Sahara. Raised in rural Texas in the early twentieth century, Lincoln Smith was well educated by his mother, a teacher, but his romantic code of honor is more suited to the Knights of the Round Table than the height of the Industrial Age. Seeking an honorable quest, Lincoln joins the French Foreign Legion and embarks on an expedition across a strange and exciting continent. Gardner sprinkles Lincoln's gullibility with chivalric ingenuity and subtle humor. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2010]
