    The year is 878, and the Saxons of Wessex, under King Alfred, have defeated the Danes to keep their kingdom free.

Uhtred flees Wessex, going north to search for his stepsister in the formidable stronghold of Dunholm.

    "Excellent Listening !"
    Overall

    My son and I have enjoyed listening to all of the Saxon Chronicle Adventures the unabridged are the best. I found this is a great way to explore history and spend great fun quality time with my twelve year old son , we listen to the story ,get absorbed into the characters and research the real life exploits of that period on the internet .This whole series series is great !

    Cuculian, "The Hound of Ulster," is the champion of Ireland and is best remembered for his single-handed defense of Ulster. The author of these accounts is Standish O'Grady (1846-1928), whose writings earned him the title "Father of the Irish Renaissance."

    H. Connelly says: "Take a pass on this one..."
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    Standish O'Grady does an superb job of bringing Cuculian to life. I thrilled and filled with excitment at his telling of the tale of this Ancient Heroic warrior from my ancestial homeland . I was made to feel as if I was there watching the events unfold before my eyes and that is the mak of not only a great story but a truly gifted storyteller as well !

    Dead Man's Chest, written as a sequel to Treasure Island, begins with Long John Silver's escape from the merchantman ship Hispaniola at Puerta Plata and culminates with the American Revolution more than a decade later. It describes in rich detail the unholy alliance between this softhearted cutthroat, his teenage nephew, David Noble, and Captain John Paul Jones. Together, they work to retrieve a king's ransom of Spanish gold and jewels from a dead man's chest.

    Robert B. says: "Pirate Tale"
    "Truly Delightful"
    Overall

    I have loved " Treasure Island " since I was a boy a just had to listen to this . While I would have like to had more of Old Long John Silver more prominent in the story it is still a delightful story to set your sail by for a high seas adventure.
