Welcome to 1001 Stories For the Road!

If you enjoy listening to classic books you've come to the right place!

Our difference is that we will often add music and sometimes sound effects, and, if you enjoy my style of narration, you'll always get me. 

Once you become used to and enjoy a narrator, its like sitting near a cabin fire and having a friend tell you a story. That's the message I get from reviewers, and I like that description.

We have some great hand-picked classics coming soon from writers such as Jack London, Washington Irving, Henry James, and many others, as we go forward. We are currently releasing new chapters every Sunday Night, but we will soon be releasing chapters of different books on Wednesday and Friday nights, to offer different choices to listeners with varying literary tastes, and include known men's and womens favorites along the way.

Young readers, or those of us who are just trying to expand our literary horizons, will soon discover why these stories are considered classics- they are expertly written, they are family friendly, they contain no bias, and the stories are powerful.

Look for these titles as we go forward:

The Call Of The Wild~Treasure Island~Anne of Green Gables~Pride and Prejudice~David Copperfield~King Solomon's Mines~The Last of The Mohegans~Little Women~The Count of Monte Christo~The Time Machine, Tarzan.....and many others. We may also be adding some fairly current stories to enrich the mix.

On April 27th, 1850, the Vigilante Committee in Troy, New York, prevented a Sheriff and a Slave Catcher from extraditing one of their own, a runaway slave named Charles Nalle, who had made his escape north in 1848 through the Underground Railway to what he hoped was freedom and the chance for a new life. Blacks and whites combined in a number of dangerous efforts to free Nalle that day, and they succeeded in doing so, scoring one small step for freedom in a turbulent time for America. The citizens of Troy later raised today's equivalent of $14,000 to buy Nalle's freedom.
