The Young Man and the Sea

By Rodman Philbrick

Skiff Beaman takes his father's boat 30 miles into the ocean, searching for a prize fish and discovering that he is completely unprepared for what the sea has in store for him. Heyborne's convincing range exposes both the mood of the young protagonist as well as that of Skiff's depressed, alcoholic father.


Narrated by Kirby Heyborne, produced by Listening Library, 2004
