Publisher's Summary

Deep within the jungles of Borneo flows a legendary river of diamonds....
An ex-marine on the run from the nightmares of war. An American scientist and his beautiful wife on a desperate journey to save their marriage. An aging native shaman trying to teach his grandson one last, all-important lesson. All are headed up an uncharted river into a confrontation with a mysterious warlord trapped by a deadly curse.
The Diamond of Jeru is a tale of love, redemption, heroism, and magic from master storyteller Louis L'Amour. Set in Sarawak in 1955, this full dramatization features an international cast of actors, cleverly crafted sound effects, and a stirring musical score that combine to create a unique audio adventure.
Before he ever wrote about the American West, Louis L'Amour traveled in the Far East. His adventures inspired numerous stories set in China, British Malaya, Arabia, and The Netherlands East Indies. L'Amour has written 90 novels and over 230 short stories in addition to nonfiction and poetry. He has received both the Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. There are over 300 million copies of his books in print.


What the Critics Say

"The music is evocative of classic 1940s film scores, and the lush and detailed sounds of rushing streams and ever-present jungle critters practically surround the listener. Seasoned professionals abound in the cast, making this a fine adventure." (AudioFile)
