The Texan Scouts by Joseph A. Altsheler (1862 - 1919).
( )
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/15767
    .
  2. 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!

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of The Texan Scouts. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "The Texan Scouts, by Joseph A. Altsheler. [Chapter]"

    .
    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Texan Scouts by Joseph A. Altsheler. 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 [Chapter]"
    • 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 Texan Scouts, by Joseph A. Altsheler. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
    .
  4. Example filename texanscouts_##_altsheler_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. texanscouts_01_altsheler_128kb.mp3)

Here is chapter 3: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/texanscouts_03_altsheler_128kb.mp3

We're building fence sometime soon, so I may be slower in posting chapters.

I still don't like the way it sounds. Just say the word and I will redo it.

Just a few notes.
1. The end silence is too short. It should be about 5 sec. and it is only 1

2. At 16:37 you say " I guess they're good and scared, but they won't come back" (talking about the wolves) It should be " They'll come back later"

everything else sounds good. Not sure why you think it was a problem. :thumbs: :clap:


I wasn't as busy as I thought I would be so I don't have to wait for Sunday. Have a great weekend !
