What is Captain Bayley’s Heir?

Captain Bayley’s Heir is a story of redemption as a young man named Frank, struggles to find his manhood and clear his name when accused of a crime he didn’t commit.

Interestingly, this story of the American western frontier and the gold rush begins in England with a close-knit family, who has secrets.

Two teen boys, Frank and Fred, and their cousin, Alice, are inseparatable. One day Frank saves a dog from drowning, which leads to a developing friendship with young Henry, a crippled boy. Listen as the story of these four unfolds as one betrays another and sets in motion Frank’s adventure in America as he joins a wagon train and travels to Sacramento, CA, to join the Gold Rush as make his fortune.

Meanwhile, in England, Alice and Henry discover that there are some amazing connections between the young people and their Uncle Harold Bayley. What secret is Uncle Harold hiding from them? Who is the mysterious daughter he refers to? And how does the crippled boy, Henry, fit into the picture?

Are you curious to know more? So were we! And Heirloom Audio Productions’ radio theater didn’t disappoint! I would love to tell you more, but it would spoil the suspense!

With three boys in our family, this rough riding western adventure hit the spot. Gunfights, villains, and gold nuggets…what kid could ask for more?

That story is the top layer of Frank’s adventure. As listeners dig deeper, we find a story of a young man forced out to make his own way in the world. Will he be able to forgive the people who didn’t believe in his innocence? Will he learn about God who offers such grace that he can hardly believe it? Will Frank be able to clear his name as he leans what it means to be an honorable and compassionate man?

This is my favorite part of the G.A. Henty Adventures. The deeper lessons that listeners learn are essential for young people as they are learning to stand on their own two feet in a world full of trials and disappointments. It is such an encouragement to my three boys to know that other people have faced and overcome similar trials. It is hard to become an adult; but it is great to have solid examples to help along the way.

After listening to Captain Bayley’s Heir you will be hooked and there are many more adventures to be enjoyed.

Don’t just stop with listening to Captain Bayley’s Heir! Travel to Ancient Egypt, early Briton, France, the American South during the Civil War, and other places as G.A. Henty takes you on eight amazing historical adventures.

The Study Guide will deepen your experience of Captain Bayley’s Heir.

Good Study Guides are tough to find. Some barely scratch the surface of teaching kids to think for themselves. But the Captain Bayley’s Heir Study Guide is different. It guides students into a deeper understanding of the issues discussed as questions lead them to evaluate and come to their own conclusions about Frank and the other characters and the decisions they make. How do decisions we make affect the people around us? What does it mean to be honorable? What should we do when we are accused of something we didn’t do? What does courage look like? Why is it important to help people in trouble and show them we value their lives?

Along with thinking and reasoning questions, the Study Guide includes vocabulary and enriching historical information to help take you back to the wild west.

How did our family use Captain Bayley’s Heir?

Our whole family absolutely loves the G.A. Henty adventures. We can’t wait to get a new one and listen together. My sons are between the ages of 6 and 14 and they all love to listen. My husband and I don’t want to miss out either.
