I'm so enjoying your reading of this book! I have a deep interest in tall ships and this book is a classic and I read it years ago, but I forgot how much information it conveys. I have listened to your version of chapter 3 three times now. I love it.

I just wanted to drop a note and say that I listened to one of Josh Smiths submissions to this book and I wanted to write to him and tell him what a great job he did. John Muir clearly had a lot of soul and Josh seams to have been able to channel it and bring it out in his recording.

Posting this snippet from "Writers Almanac" on April 21st: It's the birthday of writer and naturalist John Muir (books by this author) born in Dunbar, Scotland (1838). He fell in love with the Sierra Mountains in California and spent much of his time hiking and camping there. He was largely responsi...

I was being lazy for two months but I'm back and do intend to begin recording section 25 this evening. Sorry for going over time. I notice we are instructed to include the chapter number right after the Librivox blurb at the outset, but I can't fathom how to discover that number. Any suggestions?

Oh no! I just noticed a flaw in the recording I submitted for section 17- I repeat a phrase. I will re-submit it.

If it's O.K. for a male to risk working on a project like this, I would love to take section 25. I chose it by randomly skimming the text and I was astonished at what it had to say about laplander women: "The delicacy of a Lapland lady, which is not in the least hurt by being drunk as often as she c...

Here is section 17. It is 25:14 long. I had fun with it, as I have with the other sections of this marvelous book. Unfortunately I have had struggles with the French passages, even after feeding them into the French pronunciation website someone thoughtfully provided. I think I need Svengali to hypn...

This is exciting. I have been volunteering for a couple of months and have made and submitted a bunch of recordings but it looks like this book will be the first one I worked on to be completed and go live! It's fun just to scroll down in the Magic Window and see all the "Completed, O.K." notices. C...

Regarding section 5, I think I am going to be more comfortable withdrawing from this project. Could you please remove my recording an offer up section 5 to whoever would like to record it?
