Chapter 10 is ready. This is so interesting to me because I spent many years of my life in that part of the world. I was in the town of Astoria just last month, a very nice place to go on a sunny summer day.

Chapter 9 is ready.
I am glad you are enjoying the book. I like that Irving tries to figure out and describe the character of such people as Captain Thorn.

Chapter 7 is ready. It is strange and interesting to me that the ship and captain and crew were very good sailors, succeeding in getting all the way to the Oregon coast with no apparent problem, but then had such a hard time crossing the bar at the mouth of the Columbia river.

Hi, Helen. Thank you for your comments. Well, about those chapter keywords. I must admit that when I read a book I almost always skip over reading them. But I certainly could record them. Do you happen to know what the usual librivox policy is? What is your opinion? Carol Just chiming in :) It is u...

And Chapter 2 is ready. Oh my, have you ever heard a more fawning description of the author's patron? Thankfully not a long chapter.

I recorded the Introduction and Chapter 1. Washington Irving was a lively writer, even in this non-fiction historical account. I am sure there must be a volunteer proof listener out there who would enjoy hearing this book.

Thank you for the tilde. I do not have anyone in mind for DPL. I appreciate anyone who wants to volunteer. Hi! I would be interested in joining as DPL, but I've got a pretty full plate and am behind on several solos due to some issue with a computer crash, power outages, a bit of vacation and now o...
