Yankee Spirit

Another fine hit from Colonial Radio Theater with this one set in the year 1868 as the ship arrives in Alexandria to collect artifacts found by an archeologist as he found a tomb of an Egyptian Prince.

Rival Ship Black Arrow was hired to acquire a golden sphinx from the artifacts which was part of the collection as they were forced to steal it and the adventure begins.

From weather, to combat, to an island queen and finally EGYPTIAN SPIRITS swept the ship from the Atlantic to the Pacific. This wonderful cast kept a great story easy to follow and the music score is top notch.

I have always enjoyed Colonial Radio Theater products and I really hope you will give this one a listen and enjoy as much as I have.
