    Ticonderoga tells the story of Captain William Taylor and his Mohawk scout Degadawidah who are charged to escort Captain Carlton Campbell of the 42nd Highlanders through the dangerous lands of the Huron to Fort Edward, where the British are making plans to march on the French held Ticonderoga. On the journey they meet young orphan Adam Cobbs who receives a baptism by fire in the harsh and bloody wilderness of New York State. Ticonderoga is a musket blasting adventure on the epic scale that The Colonial Radio Theatre has become known for.

    What would have made Ticonderoga better?

    The story and acting were all horrible. It felt like an after school special version of an audible book. It included silly dialogue and stilted acting.


    What could Jerry Robbins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have less ridiculous dialogue that was less like a bad 1970's tv special.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    The actors playing the part seemed to have an odd style. This was not really so much a narration as an acting with sound effects thrown in. It was jarringly poorly done.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ticonderoga?

    I prefer a story read by talented actors to something acted out as a TV story without visuals.
