Captain Bayley's Heir Listener Comments
For me Heirloom Audio Productions is a life saver as my daughter has Autism and other disabilities and driving in a car is stressful for her and for the rest of the family. Since we started listening to the stories from Heirloom Audio Productions she is delightful in the car. Yes, every time we are in the car driving we have on one of Heirloom Audio Productions stories and have added on a few other audio books. Heirloom Audio Productions is her favorite. I cannot tell you how many times I have listened to all the stories as I have lost count. We all know the stories by heart. The funny thing is that we are not tired of them as they still grab our attention!
My family has listened to many audio books I have to admit that Heirloom Audio Productions is our favorite and we haven’t found anyone who measures up to Heirloom Audio Productions quality. Most of all I love the characters in the story that have courage, morals, and faith in action. You are missing out if you have never heard one of the audio dramas from Heirloom Audio Productions.
Heirloom Audio Productions has put out another winner in Captain Bayley's Heir!
... the Live the Adventure Club website has an interactive way to use the study guide and script. It includes the Thinking Questions and Defining Words portions for each chapter along with a quiz. You can also follow along in the audio drama script, not the e-book, through a nice pop-up window. This is especially great for those who struggle with auditory only learning. Still, the audio dramas are so encompassing, that you almost don't even realize there is not a visual component.
My family and I love audio books! We love to listen to them while: I am multitasking, we have a long drive ahead of us, or there is cruddy weather and we are stuck inside. My family usually enjoys them better if they are fun and adventuresome. I believe they are better than movies because audio books require more imagination which is great for growing minds.
...I love the music and sound effects that accompany this program. The music that is used on the CDs is adventurous and is also by itself in soundtrack form as Listen Online and MP3 downloads. It is an original score by Emmy-winning composer John Campbell (of Narnia). The Foley sound effects make you feel like you are right there with the characters and immerses you more into what's happening.
...This was a very good production and my family enjoyed listening to it thoroughly. This audio book would be a wonderful addition to a Christian homeschooling curriculum and perfect to go along with a study about the Wild West and the Gold Rush.
"This story had it all. It had family love. It had romantic love. It had loss. It had being found. It had adventure. It had gold and a treasure hunt! (This was one of our favorite parts -- when the group begins a quest to find treasure in a new location.) This story was simply something that had a little bit of something for everyone.
This was also the first time that every single member of our family listened to an entire production including our youngest member... this one kept her captivated and interested right along with her siblings. It truly made our road trip fly by. The CD says that this is for ages 6 and up, but I really think this particular production could be listened to with younger siblings pretty "safely" and easily."
We've been enjoying these stories in The Extraordinary Adventures of G.A. Henty series for a few years now, and expected the latest, Captain Bayley's Heir, to be another thrilling tale. We were not disappointed!
... Throughout the story, the themes of second chances, forgiveness, and God's grace are echoed. In fact, my favorite quote is from Frank's friend Abe, who tells him: Because it's God's grace that fills in the gaps. The Good Book puts it this way: "My grace is sufficient for thee."
Heirloom productions are always of the absolute highest quality with top-notch actors and actresses… There is never any question about quality! The music, production quality, and voice acting draw you in and keep you in the story throughout the entire production.
... I was in audio heaven once again listening to the voice of Jon Rhys Davies–you can almost hear Gimlie bantering with Legolas!
Heirloom Audio Productions are very professionally done - both the acting and the background work - and are a delight to listen to…even the one child that usually steers away from audio books was loving it!
... Captain Bayley's Heir is an audio book we'll listen to many times, and we're excited to see that Heirloom has more productions in the works. Not only are your kids learning to love history, but they're also discovering the strong moral character that drove great men to do extraordinary things.
Suspenseful, thrilling, dramatic, exhilarating, thought-provoking, and heart-felt would be ways I would describe Captain Bayley’s Heir. No other audio drama has left me on the edge of my seat, as the riveting tale is being told.
... Teaching historical moments to children is one component to instill a life long love of learning, especially when it focuses on important truths that will deepen their character. Captain Bayley’s Heir provides such a richness in content that one will feel compelled to apply what has been learned, avoid the dangers of ‘weakened’ character and rise above those challenging circumstances that seems to face us daily. So strap on your side arm, saddle up your horse, and ride out into the sunset as ‘gold fever’ takes over!

They take G.A. Henty stories, which are full of history, excitement, and character building lessons, and turn them into action packed audio dramas. If you know what radio theater is, imagine that... but updated with the technology and actors of today. It's a lot of fun, and a great way to get kids and adults excited about learning history. G.A. Henty can be hard to read, but these dramas retell the story and bring it to life, and have encouraged my kids to read more of his books. I love that last bit SO much.
...When I asked what my kids thought of Captain Bayley's Heir, I heard "Awesome!" and "probably my favorite G.A. Henty book" and "the story is well written and people today can learn they don't need to run away from their problems." My kids are really impressed with the new website and how interactive it is. They like the quizzes and streaming options, and they enjoyed the Old Time Radio Vault.
Captain Bayley’s Heir was filled with adventure from England to the Mississippi River and the California Gold Rush. The main plot keeps you in suspense over the fate of Frank who is desperate to clear his name from false accusation, while several other sub-plots add intrigue to the entire audio adventure. The professional cast, strong soundtrack and effects combined with G.A. Henty’s authorship and Bill Heid’s production team at Heirloom Audio Productions created a riveting story, making our family time unique and fun-filled.
You will come to know characters whom you will want to meet in real life, at least that's what happened for me. I found myself wrapped in wanting to discover the secrets along the way and rooting for forgiveness and grace in the end.God has a plan for our lives!The story is exhilarating! It takes place in London and America during the days of the Wild Wild West Gold Rush... I literally found myself on the edge of my seat!
