Faery Lands of the South Seas


Read by John W. Michaels

(4.5 stars; 20 reviews)

Returning from the horrors of World War I James Hall and Charles Nordhoff follow a dream to tour the South Pacific. They later co authored “Mutiny on the Bounty”. This is a love story. A travelogue and an adventure rolled into one. This book just went into the public domain, so enjoy an early 20th Century look at paradise. (Summary by Mike Vendetti) (10 hr 26 min)
