The Dark Frigate by Charles Boardman Hawes (1889 - 1923).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/the-dark-frigate-by-charles-boardman-hawes/
The frigate Rose of Devon rescues from a wreck in mid-ocean twelve men who show their gratitude by seizing the Rose, killing her captain and sailing toward the Caribbean where they hope to plunder Spanish towns and galleons. Mistaking an English man-of-war for a merchantman, they are captured and brought back to England for trial. Only one, an English lad, Philip Marsham, a member of the original crew of the Rose, is acquitted; and he, after adventures in the forces of King Charles, tires of Cromwell's England and sails for Barbados once more on the Rose of Devon.
"The Dark Frigate" has long been a favorite story for boys and in 1924 was awarded the John Newbery Medal, given annually "for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children."
When "The Dark Frigate" was first published F. F. Van deWater in The New York Tribune said: "No one, we think, has written so perfect a pirate tale since 'Treasure Island'." (from the dustjacket)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/50598
  • 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!

Hi Kathrine, I'm sorry but I'm going to have to give up the DPL job - I can't see myself finding the time to PL these in a timely manner. :( It was great working on this project, thank you for the opportunity :D
