Written By : Padriac Colum
Narrated By : Fred Williams

Length : 10 hours
Type : Juvenile
Price : $34.95 $19.95
Williamss voice is a fine match with the text, which is written in a style that is eloquent but that may seem archaic to the contemporary listener. His deep, resonant voice has something of the quality of an oracle. His delivery is subtly nuanced, and this work will be a real treat for the listener who sticks with it.AudioFile

Colums stirring telling of the Greek epics is still unequalled as an introduction to the classic myths for young readers.Publishers Weekly

Jason was born the son of a king, his destiny to rule Iolcus. But his uncle, King Pelias, who has taken over the throne, is not willing to give it up so he cunningly persuades Jason to accept a dare to bring back the famous Golden Fleece of Colchis. Jason accepts the challenge, unaware that he is being conned into a dangerous and perhaps fatal journey far from the land he loves.

Jason sets out, along with Heracles and Theseus, Perseus and Atalanta, and the sorceress Medea, on a wondrous journey in the ship Argo to strange lands populated by even stranger inhabitants. As they travel, Orpheus, the storyteller, sings songs about the gods and goddesses and the creation of heaven and earth.

This book is the story of Jason, the Argonauts, and their quest for the Golden Fleece.

PADRIAC COLUM (1881-1972) was born in Longford, Ireland. He was a poet, playwright, and author who was a major leader of the Irish Renaissance and friend to both Joyce and Yeats. Well versed in the old Gaelic myths as well as those of other cultures, he wrote a number of books for children that retell these tales.

Fred Williams, a graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, works in theater, film, TV, and radio in England, Ireland, and America. Besides narrating audiobooks, he is a performer in living-history re-enactments, an archer, and a poet.
