This title is Available Free on Libravox

I spent over thirty hours narrating this audio book with the intention that it would be free on Libravox, which it is. The publisher has taken a work that is free in the public domain and charging you to listen to it.

A Reverie for South Seas Sojourners

Although Nordhoff and Hall are best known for their 'Bounty' trilogy, this text of exquisite short stories resonates with those who have traveled - armchair or in person - to Polynesia. I am on my third 'listen' and still enjoying it immensely. The writing style of Nordhoff/Hall is well-paced and unforced; simply excellent. Also, Mike Vendetti's reading is well done and quite easy to listen to. Certainly, an outstanding work if palm-fringed atolls and gold-tinged clouds still excite your soul.
