Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ron Keith

Children • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1990

This masterful recreation of The Goddoddin, the earliest surviving North British epic poem, recounts the story of 300 men, the Companions, and their heroic, but futile, stand against the Saxons at Catraeth. Ron Keith's brilliant rendition of Prosper, shieldbearer and narrator, brings Sutcliff's compelling tale of valor, betrayal and defeat to glorious life. His unhurried pacing vividly demonstrates the sweep of historical drama making this complex story of boys, men and war accessible to a broad range of listeners. The listener is even relieved of constant referral to the pronunciation guide (many places and names are Gaelic). The audio performance provides the total immersion the literature requires and deserves. S.G. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 95]
