THE VOICE OF THE PRAIRIE
An adventure about storytelling: David Quinn and Leon Schwab set out across the prairie during the early days of radio, telling stories (and selling radio sets). David is riffing about a magic journey he took in the 1890s with Frankie the Blind Girl. Through new medium of radio he finds himself reunited with Frances, a blind school-teacher — and a new adventure ensues.
