Publisher's Summary

Join Henty's Hero on an adventure in Australia in the early days of its settlement, when the bush-rangers and the natives constituted a real and formidable danger. Reuben, a young English lad, after rather a stormy boyhood, emigrates to Australia, where he gets employment as an officer in the mounted police. Throughout, Reuben displays selflessness and endurance through trial. He encounters a dangerous life on the frontier, and must finally reckon with his past and an old enemy.

Still ringing...

Another Henty masterpiece, but Seth Gould's performance needs a re-run under the care of an editor. Serial mispronunciations are distracting, to say the least. However, the worst of it is the breathlessly running rat-a-tat monotone. The reader has no chance to absorb a situation or sense of any change of sensibility as words and sentences are piled on one-another indiscriminately, peppered with the aforementioned mispronounciations. Diction is good, and the sound level is consistent, so it has those things going for it.
