The Travels of Hildebrand Bowman by Anonymous ( - 0).


Hildebrand Bowman, a fictional midshipman sailing in the south Pacific, finds himself stranded in Queen Charlotte Sound, New Zealand after a battle with local Māori. Exploring his new surroundings, Bowman encounters a series of natural wonders and increasingly sophisticated cultures. Probably written by either John Elliot or Robert Home, two sailors under Captain Cook, "The Travels of Hildebrand Bowman" is the earliest known work of written fiction set in New Zealand. ( Lewis Fletcher)

  • 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!

Let me know if you need anything else. Do you need to advertise for a DPL?

I will be off line for about half of June and probably a week in July. If that is OK with you then I would be happy to DPL this.

I see that the PL level is standard, which does not require comparison to the text. I normally compare to the text anyway but don't report minor deviations from the text that do not significantly change the meaning. If you would like something different just ask.

We'll wait a bit longer; then if we hear nothing, we will abandon it. Sometimes life just gets in the way.
