Women of America by John Ruse Larus (1858 - 1920).


The present volume completes the story of woman as told in the series of which it forms part. The history of nations is, in its ultimate analysis, largely that of woman. Therefore this series in its wide inclusiveness forms a more than ordinarily interesting history. The present study of the women of America is innocent of theorizing or philosophy and from the nature of the subject the narrative takes the reader into paths generally unfamiliar in historic studies. - From the Introduction by John A. Burgan.

True, but the title page of this book spells it Rouse. I can change the entry to Ruse and put Rouse in as a pseudonym so either on would come up in a catalog search. Meanwhile I think I found a date of death of 1920.

Thanks Jo. That was fast. Where did you find the death date?

Tricia, I saw the Ruse/Rouse thing and thought the title page would be the one to choose, so I went with it.

Hi Reyeball,
The first section is up for you to listen to. The url and length of the file are in the magic window (mw). Some of the language is quite old fashioned - a bit tricky to put all in one sentence. :wink:

Hi Reyeball,
There are 3 more files for you to listen to. I needed to split several of the chapters into 2, one of them may need 3 sections, but I'm editing the mw as I go. I've put the page numbers up to give you an idea of where we are if you are following along with the text.

Hi Jo,

Hi everyone,
I am very sorry to say this but I will no longer be able to be the proof listener on this project. I am going back to work now and I don't foresee that I will have enough time to commit to listening to this project.
So sorry and thank you for the opportunity,
Reyball
