The Valiant Runaways by Gertrude Atherton (1857 - 1948) .

Volunteers outside the USA: Gertrude Atherton died in 1948. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, and Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-valiant-runaways-by-gertrude-atherton/
Roldan Castanada does not want to be conscripted into the army. Although no coward, the idea of a regimented army life does not suit his ideals, so he decides to run away from home with his friend Adan Pardo, and the pair disappear into the California wilderness. Savage bears, a river rescue, capture by Indians, escape on wild mustangs and a revolutionary battle await the boys in this suspenseful adventure nove. (Summary by Lynne Thompson)
  • Target completion date: 2013-May-31
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3706
  • 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!
