About the Author:

Walter Macken is a hero of Irish literature. He wrote for radio, television and the stage as well as directing plays. He is best known for his adult trilogy Seek the Fair Land, Rain on the Wind and The Silent People which spans generations of Irish history from the arrival of Cromwell to the Famine. However he found these so difficult to write that he began work on two children's books (both published by Macmillan Children's Books), Flight of the Doves and Island of the Great Yellow Ox as a form of relaxation. He died in the 1980s in his beloved Oughterard, a quiet village in the west of Ireland.

From AudioFile:

Adventure, suspense, an Irish setting, and a first-class narrator make this a production that's hard to turn off. The story starts when Conor takes his little brother and two vacationing children out on his family's boat. When a storm hits and the four are marooned on a nearby island, they're swept into the world of Lady Agnes-a woman obsessed with finding the long-lost Great Yellow Ox, a relic made of solid gold. Narrator Sean Barrett creates wonderful voices and accents for all the characters. Listeners will be kept guessing until the very end of this production, which is a fine choice for adventure fans and family listening.
