Determined to right wrongs and win fame, Don Quixote of La Mancha embarks on what he sees as the proper exploits of a knight errant. On his faithful steed, Rocinante, and with his squire, Sancho Panza, he travels the Spanish countryside in search of adventure.

But Don Quixote does not live in the chivalric world of the books he so loves to read. The adventures he embarks on are misadventures.

Four centuries ago Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra published his great work The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote de La Mancha. It is recognized as the first novel and a work that anticipated the many things the novel would become. It is a work of genius that was recently voted the most important novel of all time in a poll of authors conducted by the Nobel Institute.

Barbara Nichol produced a three part CBC Radio Ideas program, Don Quixote: Four Hundred Years On the Road. In her retelling, she takes the young reader along on the merry, scary, ribald, funny, and heartbreaking travels of the Don Quixote of the original text.
