Care to travel across Scotland with a native guide? Interested in experiencing local hospitality? Are you willing to do it against your will to seek out your rightful inheritance? Then join David Balfour on his 1751 quest, guided by the guileful Alan Breck. Narrator Jim Weiss’s brisk pace and unpretentious voice make listeners feel as if they're hearing an intimate account of the story. Portraying the characters, Weiss brings bravado and a Scots brogue into play. He blusters as a clan leader and gratingly connives as devious Uncle Ebenezer. As David, Weiss is eager or apprehensive as the situation merits—whether the character is shipwrecked at night, hiding for his life by day, or cave-bound and delirious with sickness.
