The Uphill Climb by B. M. Bower (1871 - 1940).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-uphill-climb-by-b-m-bower/

Ford Campbell is a hard-working, honest, decent cowboy—when he’s sober. But give him a bottle of whiskey and all bets are off. Usually it just makes him rowdy, but this time…well, this time he thinks there might just have been a wedding. Was he the groom? Who was the bride? And where is she? ( Tom Penn)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14456
  • 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!

Thanks, Lynne. I've asked someone if she wants to DPL. If she declines I'll need to advertise. Should know is a day or two.

Thank you, Helen! :thumbs:
I'm annotating my script and am about a week away from turning in the first chapter. I'm aiming to do a chapter a week. I think this book will be a lot of fun. Glad to have you with me.

Helen, chapter 1 ready for PL.
Is it OK with you for me just to put the link in the MW or do you want it in the message as well?

Thanks!

Lets hope I can keep it up. There are 16 (!) different characters to do voices for, plus the narrator.
