In the first Uncle Abner story ever published, young nephew Martin is alone on a dangerous mission to deliver a huge bundle of cash for his father’s cattle transactions—and someone else might know he has the money.

Dr. Suzanne Bray, professor of British literature and culture at Lille Catholic University in France, talks about how Uncle Abner might be modeled on the Old Testament prophets of the Bible.

This audio production contains the full text of Melville Davisson Post's story, "The Angel of the Lord" from the collection Uncle Abner: Master of Mysteries. A copy of the book can be obtained from West Virginia University Press.
