Publishers Description Listeners will be captivated by this moving tale of good versus evil through the life of winsome young sailor Billy Budd.

His fortunes declined with the 1851 publication of Moby-Dick, now recognized as a masterpiece but scorned by Melville's contemporaries. The author was obliged to work as a New York City customs inspector and died in obscurity, three decades before the critical reassessment of his work.

Great Production Dec 29, 2007
This edition of Billy Budd, written by Herman Melville, is another literary classic set to dramatized audio by Focus on the Family. As usual, they do a wonderful job of stirring the imagination and bringing out the themes of the book. I'd highly recommend this production.
