The Frontier in American History by Frederick Jackson Turner (1861 - 1932).
to be added later.
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/22994
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:

    • Say:
      "The Frontier in American History, by Frederick Jackson Turner. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Section [number] of The Frontier in American History by Frederick Jackson Turner. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Section]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Frontier in American History, by Frederick Jackson Turner. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.
  • Example filename frontierinamericanhistory_##_turner.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. frontierinamericanhistory_01_turner.mp3)

ok, here we go :)

i threw out your summary, it was not pd. you dont have to write a new one right away, just at one point before cataloging i would be happy if you could put a few sentences together :)

i see this is your first solo :thumbs: i will send you a pm with instructions and how to enter the magic window in a moment. please let me know if anything doesnt work out or if something is unclear.

and we need a dpl!

Hi Carolin - thank you so much for helping me along! :D

With regards to the summary - so sorry about that. I got a little confused as to where it all had to come from. I'm aware of what the book is mostly about but I'd feel more comfortable filling that bit in when I've done a couple of sections, just so I have a better feel of how to do that justice.

Yes, we absolutely need a DPL - how do we find one? (I feel like such a noob)

:)

everyone feels like a n00b during their first solo :)

waiting a bit before you come up with a summary is fine, you can wait with writing it until you submit the last section. i see you filled in the magic window, and you did it perfectly! :thumbs:

and about trying to catch a dpl, id say we hang out in the launch pad a little longer because a lot of our regular dpls come by here every so often and look at new projects that might interest them. there is always a chance that someone will volunteer. if nobody comes forward by the time you uploaded a section or two, we can advertise at listeners wanted and draw the attention of all those who didnt look in the launch pad :) nothing to worry about, really, im sure it wont take us long to find someone who will be interested in this project.

Sounds good. I'll have a couple up this weekend, hopefully.

Is there something specific I need to do with regard to ID3 tags, or should I just leave them?

the id3 tags are filled in automatically at cataloging under the new system, so you can leave them blank :)

Hi Josh,

A wonderful reading and section 1 is PL OK. This falls out of the range of standard listening but since I'm from near the area talked about in this section "Alleghanies" caught my attention. It's pronounced the same as the link below if you wish to make a change.

I think this will quite an interesting listen. Thanks for having me along. :D

Thanks Laura!

I've done a search and there are really only five instances of the word in this section, so I don't think I'll go back and change it - but I certainly won't make that mistake again. :mrgreen:
