In New England Fields and Woods by Rowland E. Robinson (1833 - 1900).
Born in rural Vermont in 1833, and nearly unknown to today's readers, Rowland Evans Robinson was once one of Vermont's best-known writers. A talented artist, he drew cartoons in New York City for the “funny papers" before returning to Vermont, where he authored nearly a dozen widely-read books on nature and rural farm life. Poor vision progressed to blindness between the ages of 44 and 60, yet he continued to write with the aid of his wife, Anna. This collection of short essays follows New England's changing seasons and moods in all its natural beauty. ( Nemo)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/in-new-england-fields-and-woods-by-rowland-e-robinson/
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/36844
  • 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!

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

Oh, Amy ... i forgot..

Should I shorten the file name .... something like "newenglandwoods" instead? ... It's pretty long now!

Also, could you please give Eva access to the MW as well?

Thnx!

Hi Nemo,
Yes, a shorter file name would be great. I put Eva in as "Alternate BC" so she should have MW access.
Thanks!
Amy
