The further Adventures of Zorro (Unabridged): Johnston McCulley
The swashbuckling sequel to The Mark of Zorro (The Curse of Capistrano), The Further Adventures of Zorro sees the daring hero out for revenge once more. After Captain Ramon kidnaps the beautiful Lolita Pulido, Zorro takes to the seas and battles pirates in a bid to win her back. Swordfights, death traps, and disastrously tight corners await him. But it is never much more than a challenge as the gallant caballero laughs in the face of danger - nothing can faze him. Villainous villains, heroic heroes, and damsels in distress are all brought to life in full sonic splendor.

Originally serialized, this exciting adventure story achieved immortal fame thanks to the Douglas Fairbanks film of the same name - a cinematic triumph that inspired author Johnston McCulley to dedicate the book release to Fairbanks. It has since seen numerous film and other adaptations, including Blackstone Audio’s full-cast audio drama produced by the renowned Yuri Rasovsky and featuring the voice talents of Val Kilmer. 1820s California, in a bygone era of sprawling haciendas and haughty caballeros, suffers beneath the whip of oppression. Missions are pillaged, native peasants are abused, and innocent men and women are persecuted by the corrupt governor and his army. But a champion of freedom rides the highways. His identity hidden behind a mask, the laughing outlaw Zorro defies the tyrant’s might. A deadly marksman and a demon swordsman, his flashing blade strikes down those who exploit the poor and oppressed. First published in 1919, The Mark of Zorro remains a paradigm of swashbuckling adventure and a popular novel to this day. Johnston McCulley (1883–1958), a one-time police reporter, was the author of hundreds of stories, fifty novels, plus numerous screenplays for film and television. He was also the creator of the character Zorro. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Armando Durán. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/004762/bk_blak_004762_sample.mp3.
