have we decided how to pronounce Tecumseh? I see there has been great debate on the subject. I live near and visit Oklahoma often and I know there it is pronounced Ta-com-see....my husband is native and we have PowWow's there...just let me know how you want me to say it...

I think we decided not to worry about it too much. :lol:
So far, I think 3 people are saying Tah-come-see and 2 Tah-come-suh... I think there are regional variations. Please read it however feels most natural for you.

Thanks.

Hey did you notice we are over half way finished recording the Chronicles of Canada Series! We have completed 15 volumes out of a possible 29!! (PD GR) This one is also very close to completion. Counting this one, we are 55% done!

Thanks for reviving this Sarah.

Hey Sarah, we have a live one: http://forum.librivox.org/viewtopic.php?p=561961#p561961 :mrgreen:

Just thought I would let you 'in' on the conversation. (just so you know where the claim for his ch was)

Thanks goodness for enthusiastic newbies to help revive things too. (And we have many here already!)

It will be interesting to listen through the whole series and notice the readers changing as life changes and some drop out and others take their place.

<sigh> I love this place </sigh> :9:

Thanks - great job recruiting. ;)

Chapter 4 PL notes:

length is actually 17:10

there's a missed edit at 4:12

at 8:23, there's a rough join that could benefit from a bit of silence... Up to you whether you fix it or not. I wouldn't have mentioned it if you didn't have a missed edit to fix anyway.

And here is chapter 7, running 25:31.

A wonderful, and heartbreaking chapter. I actually cried reading the final excerpt from Brock's notes, speaking glowingly of the natives' love of their king. Tecumseh's Shawnee and countless other Indians offered up their service (and lives) in exchange for what they thought was Britain's fatherly 'protection' of their people. If only he knew ...
