ESL English Listening :: Adult Literacy

For almost forty years, Robert B. Parker's inimitable private investigator Spenser has been solving cases. Now, for the first time, see how it all began. This story explores the fictional detective's formative years. Events in his teen years illustrate how he developed a strong moral code. Living with his father and two uncles, Spenser becomes a man with a fierce sense of right and wrong. Facing down a drunken bear in the woods and inadvertently allowing a friend's father to die so that he would not be able to abuse her, Spenser slowly figures out how to act as a man would, making his own decisions and standing by what he believes.
[ Contains some heavy fighting, drinking, and sexual discussion.]
