Colonial Folkways by Charles McLean Andrews (1863 - 1943).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/colonial-folkways-by-charles-mclean-andrews/
This work according to the subtitle is "a chronicle of American life in the reign of the Georges." It describes land, locales, houses, habits, diversions, learning, religion, labor, and travel. ( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/chroniclesofamer09john
  • 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!

Where I grew up in NY there were still a few 18th C houses with stone exteriors.

Cool! I like old houses. And modern ones too, especially Frank Lloyd Wright homes, like Falling Waters.
