Editorial Reviews

The beloved veteran actor Joss Ackland doesn’t just perform these classic stories from Captain Frederick Marryat, he loads you onto the ship, pulls up the anchor, and puts you face-to-face with all the danger and adventure found in Marryat’s treacherous waters. In the first story, The Phantom Ship young Philip Vanderdecken must journey around the world in an effort to save his father from the Phantom Ship. And Mr. Midshipman Easy is the story of a young seaman and his move up the ranks. Ackland handles them both with a sublime animation, making them a treat for listeners young and old.

Publisher's Summary

Here are two of Captain Marryat's stirring tales of the sailing ships of the British Navy in the 19th century. You will hear vivid descriptions, conjuring up the sounds and smells of the sea, timbers, and tar, the rattle of the anchor chain, and the shouts of the sailors. The stories are masterfully told by Joss Ackland.
