The Boy Scouts in the Blue Ridge by Herbert Carter (1854 - 1938).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-boy-scouts-in-the-blue-ridge-by-st-george-henry-rathborne/

The Silver Fox Patrol is hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, at the invitation of Bob White. They are enjoying their outing in a real wilderness, but trouble comes along from a local Moonshiner.

Herbert Carter is one of many pseudonyms used by St George Rathborne. (Ann Boulais)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/32240
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      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!

ANN could Carter be Patchin? Seems this book is somewhat similar to the beloved PR Boys

Chapters 10-15 are all yours, thanks Ken!

Herbert Carter is one of at least a million psuedonyms of a gentleman named St. George Rathborne. This guy wrote a bunch of books, all with a different author named. And it makes my life interesting because I have to change the template to put Carter in the spots where Rathborne is put in, including at archive. But, you are right to question whether this could be Patchin or not because the books are so similar to PRB. I wondered the same thing myself, but Patchin was a real person, different from Rathborne, Patchin died in 1925, Rathborne in 1938.
