Brings History To Life For Your Children
In An Interesting And Fun Way!
Your child will soak up this story, ask questions and
want to know more about history. And, to help open
up and facilitate communication between you and your
child... a study guide is included.
Good Reason #3: Effective Learning Methodology
— In Under Drake’s Flag, the lessons come by example
and in story form. We all seem to learn best when lessons
are presented in story form. And as any parent or teacher
knows well, direct teaching and “lecturing” are far less
effective. As an example: Jesus used parables to teach
for a reason. And that reason is, the lessons become
extremely “sticky” when they’re about someone else.
In Drake’s adventure there are truths your child will
pick up naturally and effortlessly because they are woven
seamlessly into the narrative.
Good Reason #4: Develops Self-Reliance In Your
Children — If you learn anything by reading G.A.
Henty’s story it’s that you need to become self-reliant and
able to take care of yourself if you are to get anywhere
in life. Even more: If you are going to help others you
must do it from a position of strength. (You can’t help
someone out with money if you’re bankrupt yourself.)
In a world where the majority wants something for
nothing, Henty encourages our children to have patience,
perseverance… and… to go the extra mile.
Good Reason #5: Because It’s Hard To Raise
Children Today — In terms of raising kids, today’s
culture is a nightmare. Your child receives—literally—
thousands of messages every day in all sorts of media
forms encouraging them to take the low-road. Under
Drake’s Flag can serve as a dose of “mental health food”
in a world where toxic, “mental junk food” is the norm.
We as parents (and grandparents) are really engaged in
a daily battle for the hearts and minds of our children.
Good Reason #6: Time Is Limited To “The Critical
Years.” You’ve only got so much time to affect your
child’s character. Kids grow up and go their own way
very quickly. God has given us parents “stewardship”
over our kids and, as such, expects us to “train our
children up in the way that they should go.”

One last thing. It’s important: Probably the thing
that really makes the Under Drake’s Flag audio drama
“go over the top” is the study guide. We designed it for
busy parents who really want to engage their children
with great ideas and thought provoking discussions.
The guide, (really a mini curriculum) provides the
opportunity for a lot of “back and forth” conversations
which will be as much fun for you as it will be for your

THOMSON Illinois— Albert Einstein once said,
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” And
Napoleon said, “Imagination rules the world.”
These were men of enormous accomplishment and
lauded by many as geniuses.
So, if they thought so much of the power of
imagination, it must have some merit.
And if that’s the case, we as parents (and grandparents)
have a real dilemma on our hands when it comes to our
Let Me Explain…
Our children are living in a world that is increasingly
bombarding them with visual imagery. And the effect of
all this visual imagery (television, video games, online
videos, et cetera) and all other kinds of image-based
“education” and entertainment really create a world
that’s highly artificial.
And this highly artificial world, quite literally…
Shuts Down Their Imagination!
And that’s a real problem, because, as The Wall Street
Journal stated in an article titled, “The Power of Magical
“Imagination is necessary for learning about people
and events we don’t directly experience, such as history
or events on the other side of the world. For young kids,
it allows them to ponder the future, such as what they
want to do when they grow up.”
And our school system is not helping the situation at
As one prominent educator put it, “… it is almost an
indignity when schools are forced to stuff children full of
facts without bowing to the greater good of creativity and
the encouragement of imagination. It is by far the most
overlooked part of a child’s education.”
So What Can We (As Parents) Do To
Protect Our Children From This Force-Fed,
Brain-Numbing Visual Onslaught?
That’s where a revolutionary form of audio learning
(called audio theatre) comes in.
Audio theatre—just like reading, but in a more fun,
entertaining and engaging way—allows children to
exercise and build their imagination by letting them
create their own self-generated visual images and mental
Are Then Played In The
Theatre Of Their Mind!
The audio theatre format lends itself to learning and
thinking. This is especially true compared to video.
And here’s why:
Audio actually activates the left (or thinking) side of
the brain. On the other hand, vivid visual stimulation by
contrast shuts down a child’s ability to think and instead
activates (through the right brain) the child’s pleasure-seeking side.
This is especially true of well-done, graphically-strong visual stimulation where video does all the
creative work for the child…
Leaving NOTHING To The Imagination…And…
NOTHING For The Brain To Do!
Simply put, audio learning—in the audio theatre
format—creates a whole different (better) type of brain
Hi, my name is Bill Heid. I run a medium-sized
technology and information publishing company in
the Midwest. I am, perhaps like you, a parent (and
grandparent). And, over the last decade or so I have
become increasingly concerned about where our country
(and the world) is headed in general… but specifically…
as it relates to our children.
So much so, over the past couple of years I undertook
a project to help counter all the negative programming
our kids are being bombarded with on a daily basis…
especially the mind-numbing visual programming.
Here’s what I did:
I took a group of employees—including my son
Nick—to London and reproduced G.A. Henty’s
adventure book, Under Drake’s Flag: A Tale Of The
Spanish Main in audio theatre format. I spared no
expense in hiring some of the finest English actors…
most of whom are in the Shakespearian theatre and
movies over there. And, as a special treat, we were able
to procure prominent British actor Brian Blessed as the
Brian is a friend of the Queen and quite an adventurer
in his own right. He has attempted to climb Mount
Everest three times (without oxygen)… and… will make
another attempt next year at 77-years-old! He is also
the oldest man to trek to the North Magnetic pole on
foot. So, it was a real treat to have him narrate one of the
greatest adventure stories ever told.
In addition, the production crew we hired was top
notch… including… award-winning composer John
Campbell who did the original score for C.S. Lewis’ The
Chronicles of Narnia… which… is a classic of children’s
literature that has sold over 100 million copies in 47
languages. We were very fortunate to have him score
original music for this epic adventure story.
But Who Is G.A. Henty?
G.A. (George Alfred) Henty was a prolific English
novelist and special correspondent (or what we now call
a war correspondent).
He wrote more than 120 novels and is best known
for his historical adventure stories that were written for
children. Popular in the late 19th century, they have
regained a resurgence of popularity today among many
homeschoolers and Christians.
The reason being: Henty’s stories—through thought
and deed—encourage children to cultivate and display
the virtues of courage, bravery, honesty, adventure,
resourcefulness, self-reliance, persistence, ambition,
curiosity, compassion and more.
All of which are positive traits a child needs in this
ever-changing, highly-unpredictable world we live in
And, the exact opposite of what they’re getting from
our out-of-control, narcissistic or “me” culture being
force-fed to them daily from nearly every conceivable
