Treasure Island. This was the first novel that I narrated. Now, 15 years later, with an upgraded mic, studio, and ability, I thought I’d give it another shot.

So much of our pirate lore comes from this book. Dead Man’s chest, a pirate with a parrot that talks, you’ll see. If you missed it the first time around, I hope you like revisiting my old stomping grounds. I must have read this book a dozen times, and it’s always an amazing adventure.

And now, Treasure Island, Part 1 of 7, by Robert Louis Stevenson.
