Seven and Nine years Among the Camanches and Apaches: An Autobiography by Edwin Eastman ( - 0).


Edwin Eastman accounts about his family being attacked and taken into captivity by the Commanche and Apache tribes. This is a first hand account about his savage abductors and the courageous search for his wife after being separated from her at the hands of his abductors. This is a harrowing account of the perils of early settlers who were trying to make a new life for themselves and their family. ( Paul Alaniz)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Welcome!

Your project hasn't been set up, probably because this is your second post in the forum.

Please, PLEASE, before embarking on a solo, do two things:

(1) We do STRONGLY encourage a one-minute test (LINK) to check your technical settings. It's not an audition, but to make sure you're exporting at the correct bit rate, have your recording in mono, etc. It would be a shame to record a whole section, only to have to scrap it and redo it because of some simple setting that is incorrect.

(2) Claim, record, and get OK'd at least one section in a group project. This is to make sure you know what you're getting into. Recording a whole book isn't as easy as it seems. It isn't simply sitting down and recording. There's editing to do - and that often can take up to 5 times as long as recording does. In my experience, a ballpark estimate of 95% of brand new readers who start with a solo end up quitting before finishing. Please test the waters first before jumping in. :) Not only that, you're basically alone in a solo: you are the coordinator, and unless you have a very friendly DPL, you won't get much encouragement while doing your solo.

I was aware of the first criteria, just got sidetracked before submitting.

The second criteria I was not aware of (I thought tackling a group project was a suggestion) and I fully understood the task ahead and have edited before. You may delete my thread post as you seem to have clumped me into a novice group, very understandable.

Not sure what happened here, but moving this to Book Suggestions to keep the launchpad tidy.

I wanted to work this project alone and was discouraged as I was new to the forum. I still want to move forward to working this project as a solo.
