The Ransom of Red Chief and Others
Narrated By: ,
Date: July 2020
Duration: 1 hours 4 minutes
Four favorite tales from the pen of American short-story writer O. Henry that burst with his humor, pathos, and endearing observations on children, the poor, and dogs! In this collection: “The Ransom of Red Chief” (two kidnappers hatch a plot and get more than they bargain for!), “Memoirs of a Yellow Dog” (a put-upon pup and his master yearn for a better life), “The Cop and the Anthem” (all poor Soapy wanted was a warm bed for the winter), and “The Gift of the Magi” (the classic Christmas tale of love and giving from the heart). Performed by Mark Redfield with Mackenzie Menter. Original music by Jennifer Rouse.
