Martin Rattler

Written by R. M. Ballantyne

Narrated by Peter Joyce

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars5/5 (1 rating)
Length: 6 hours


Robert Michael Ballantyne was one of the most popular adventure story writers during Victoria's reign. He strongly believed that boys should grow up taking risks, and his hero, Martin Rattler, certainly has a thrilling time in this tale.

Aunt Dorothy Grumbit thinks him a very bad boy, but Martin possesses all the manly virtues that one expects from a Ballantyne hero, and the story has all the traditional elements of a rollicking yarn: jolly jack tars, pirates, shipwreck, travel up the Amazon, diamond mines and capture by savage tribes.
