Act I. As the story begins, we learn that Chief Brown Bear, upon Mary's advice, has taken the Kadota's claim to the land to the courts. Meanwhile, Mary, the foster-daughter of Chief Brown Bear, has fallen behind on her mortgage payment to the United States government for the land on which her Inn stands. The Forest Rangers have arrived in the area, in the midst of tracking down a disruptive group of Indians. They come across several young ladies staying at the inn who are on vacation from the Eastchester Finishing School. Captain Jim tells Mary that the leader of the wayward Indians is Yellow Feather, who turns out to be Brown Bear's son, thought dead, and who threatened to harm Mary. Captain Jim and Fleet Foot set off to find Yellow Feather.

Act II. General Fairfax arrives, assumes command of the Rangers, and sends them off to find Captain Jim so as to have the ladies to himself. Outside at night, Mary is captured and tied to a tree by Yellow Feather, but is rescued by Captain Jim. The Rangers, who have surrounded the Inn, capture Yellow Feather as he tries to escape. Fairfax then tells everyone that the United States government has decided in Brown Bear's favour, and so Brown Bear gives Mary the land that the Inn stands on, rendering the rest as a national park

The charming and sentimental story, based on fact, is set in Austria just prior to the Anchsluss and tells how Maria, a young noviciate nun, is sent back into the outside world for a trial period as it is felt that she is too young and high spirited to be ready to take her vows. She is given the task of becoming a governess to the seven children of the widowed Captain von Trapp and soon wins the hearts of the entire household. Before long she has organised the children into a choir but when von Trapp's friend, the impressario Max Detweiler, suggests that they should compete at the Salzburg Folk Festival the Captain refuses. His fiancÚ Baronness Elsa Schaeder, jealous of Maria's popularity, suggests that the girl has fallen in love with the Captain. Knowing that this true, Maria returns to the Abbey, but the Mother Abbess (Patricia Routledge) sends her back to face the situation. Elsa realising that the Captain loves Maria, leaves. Maria now accepts the Captain proposal and they are married at the Abbey but they have to cut short their honeymoon when Austria is overrun by the Nazis. On arriving home, they find that Max has gone against the Captain's order and entered the children in the festival. Under cover of the excitement caused by the Festival, where they win first prize, they flee the country across the mountains and go on to become the world famous Trapp Family Singers.

Story & Tracks: [Click here >> ]

 

I Remember Mama originated as a memoir by Kathryn Forbes entitled Mama's Bank Account. It was adapted for the stage by John Van Druten in 1944, filmed in 1948, and served as the basis for a 1950s television series. Every incarnation basically was the same, a series of heartwarming vignettes centering on a family of Norwegian immigrants living in San Francisco in the early 20th Century. At its core is the oldest daughter, Katrin, who yearns to be a published writer and conspires to meet renowned author Dame Sybil Fitzgibbons, a guest at the Fairmont Hotel, for professional advice and guidance. It is through Katrin's eyes we see the struggles, hopes, and dreams of the Hansens unfold.

Wuthering Hights by Emily Bronte.

Read by Patricia Routledge.

 

14 hours of literature read by Patricia Routledge

 

Story & Comment:[Click here >> ]

 

 

Published in 1847, Wuthering Heights was not well received by the public, many condemned it as sordid, vulgar, and unnatural. Emily Bronte died in 1848 believing that her only novel was a failure. It was not until 1850, when Wuthering Heights received a second printing with an introduction by Emily's sister Charlotte, that it attracted a wide readership. And from that point the reputation of the book has never looked back. Today it is widely recognized as one of the great novels of English literature. Even so, Wuthering Heights continues to divide readers. It is not a pretty love story. It is rather a swirling tale of largely unlikable people caught up in obsessive love that turns to dark madness. It is cruel, violent, dark and brooding, and many people find it extremely unpleasant. And yet it possesses a grandeur of language and design, a sense of tremendous pity and great loss that sets it apart from virtually every other novel written.
