Barnaby, a kind, half-witted young man, joins the Gordon rioters to proudly carry their banner. He, his murderous father, the hangman Dennis, and the madcap Hugh are arrested and condemned to death. This novel is noted for its vivid descriptions of mob scenes - not unlike those that Dickens depicted in "A Tale of Two Cities". Narrated by Flo Gibson. AVAILABLE ON CASSETTE AND CD.
