The Hunter

Audiobook

Hai Li Bu lives in a small Chinese village. Even though he is a good hunter, there is a drought, and he can no longer find enough food to feed the village. One day, while hunting deep in the forest, Hai Li Bu rescues the Dragon King of the Sea's daughter. As a reward, Hai Li Bu is given the ability to understand the speech of animals. There is one condition—if Hai Li Bu tells anyone about his gift he will turn to stone. Soon Hai Li Bu is able to feed everyone again. Then the animals tell him a huge storm is coming that will destroy the village. When he tries to warn everyone they refuse to believe him unless he tells them how he knows. Now, Hai Li Bu must decide whether to save himself or his village. Mary Casanova's adaptation of this Chinese folktale, combined with Richard Poe's subtle yet powerful narration brings to life a story listeners won't soon forget.
