Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges’ historically accurate, exciting, and edifying audio recordings.

Twelve-year-old Peter Hulbert is left an orphan in Leyden, Holland, as the rest of the Pilgrim’s sail for the New World. A merchant of the West India Company takes him to New Amsterdam as his servant. Here Peter’s adventures begin in this historically accurate tale of life in old New York.

The purpose of this story is to show children the home life of the colonists with whom they meet in their history books. So that the stories may appeal more directly to the children, they are told from the viewpoint of a child and purport to have been related by a child. It is entertaining as well as instructive for young people to read of the toil and privations in the homes of those who came into a new world to build a country for themselves, and such facts are not to be found in history books.

Written in the 1800s, the Young Listeners Collection features children’s stories from yesterday’s classics. Learn from our nation’s founders whose Christian faith was lived out in the lives of the characters in these stories.

About the Narrator

Jim Hodges began reading aloud in the second grade with a stirring rendition of Dick and Jane. He continued to volunteer to speak throughout his schooling years, performed as a newscaster while in the Navy, and participated in community theater groups. His wife, Monica, once asked what his dream job would be. He answered, “I’d record books.” And so began Jim Hodges Audio Books, producing unabridged recordings of the G. A. Henty historical novels, children’s books, Overtly Christian titles, and classic literature.
