Into the Frozen South by James Marr (1902 - 1965).


James Marr was a Boy Scout selected to go along with Sir Ernest Shackleton aboard the Quest in 1921 for the Shackleton–Rowett Expedition to Antarctica. This book provides a description of what would be Shackleton's last exploration due to his untimely death en route. ( mleigh)

    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!

Thank you so much for volunteering. I do appreciate it and look forward to you keeping my recordings up to snuff.

From the first three chapters - I have found it quite interesting reading. I hope you do to.


Thanks again.

Here is Chapter 3.

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/intothefrozensouth_03_marr_128kb.mp3
35:58

I just realized that this year is the 100th anniversary of the start of this trip. (I can't believe I didn't figure that out until now.)
With that in mind I would like to aim for a release of this title on September 17th, the day the Quest left London. Do you have any thoughts on that? I'd greatly appreciate it if you think that is a good/bad idea.


Anyway, please let me know of any issues with this chapter. I'm just glad the next two are shorter.

Thanks for your reviewing for me.

Chapter 3 is PL OK.

September is a good goal, I think.
Should you want to finish before then, it is no problem to hold it until that date to be released. At least I know that has been done before. But, Ann can speak to that better as the MC for the project.

I'm about halfway through editing the next chapter but I'm off for a week with my father so it will be delayed some.


Thanks,
