During the American Revolution, 15-year-old Louis Nelson and 10-year-old Paul Sampson join famed frontier scout Simon Kenton in the advance section of Major George Rogers Clark force crossing the Ohio River to take the British Forts of Kaskaskia, Cahokia, and Vincennes. Danger awaits them as they go deep into enemy territory while war drums ring through the forest.

Presented by the award winning Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air, Kentucky is the first in CRT's Spirit of America series, dramatizing the books by James Otis that revolve around great moments in the early history of the United States.

Executive Producer Mark Vander Berg Produced by Neil Gustin Music by Jeffrey Gage Dramatized for audio and directed by Jerry Robbins Cover illustration by Iman Jordan

Waste of a credit

Too short a story with amateur casting I feel as if I was robbed of a $15.90 credit.

What made the experience of listening to Kentucky the most enjoyable?

Experiencing James Otis's work for the first time, through the excellent dramatization by the Colonial Radio Theater.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Kentucky?

The set up and introduction of all the major players and how their story(s) unfold.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Actually I paid more attention to the characters and their lines and how these propelled the story along. CRT really knows how to blend detail and action in a single sentence.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Kentucky, price of Freedom.

Any additional comments?

I thought CRT's production of Kentucky was a great listen and I'm looking forward to more in the spirit of America series.
