I’m hoping that if we get enough supporters, I can record some more classics outside of the podcast. I’m researching out an Alexandre Dumas book that might fit the bill. If you can swing it, please chip in!

And now for something completely different.

A while ago, back in May, I asked via Facebook whether  it might be time for a western to be in order. Since I’m from the West myself, I thought it might be fitting. For one reason or other, I wasn’t feeling it. However, I did run across this idea. Today’s book, The Yellow Rose, is from Maurus Jokai, or Jokai Mor, one of Hungary’s most famous writers. Hungary is famous for its horse culture, and this book takes place at a time before railroads, and deals largely with the traditions and way of life for the cowherds and horsemen, or csikos, of Hungary.

Well, I thought, what if I performed this book as if it were an American Western? It parallels our trope of “Western” so well, why not? So, let’s give it a shot.

Let’s go now to an adventure in the old world, in a Western that takes place a stone’s throw from Asia.

And now, The Yellow Rose, Part 1 of 3, by Maurus Jokai.
