Northern Trails, Book 2 by William J. Long (1867 - 1952).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/northern-trails-book-2-by-william-j-long/

"The reader who follows these trails will find them leading into a new country, a land of space and silence where it is good to be, away up among the mountains and woods and salmon rivers and mossy barren grounds of Labrador and Newfoundland." Indeed, reading Long's keen observations about animals and their behavior transports the reader into a land of nature, space and silence. (William J. Long, from the Preface and kathrinee)
    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!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=coo.31924002902132;view=1up;seq=9
    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!

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

      northerntrails2_##_long.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. northerntrails2_01_long.mp3)
    9. Example ID3 V2 tags - filling in ID3 tags are completely optional! If you want to add them, this is how to do so:
      (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
      Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
      Artist: William J. Long
      Title: ## - [Section title]
      Album: Northern Trails, Book 2

Good morning Kathrine. I was going to claim the preface and the first three sections until I got to The stream here and saw that Melissa is taking it as a solo. Ah well. I guess I snoozed too long. If you come across another book like this please keep me in mind. Thanks.

Enjoy, Melissa.

Thank you Debbie :) I've removed the "come here and read" line in my signature line about this book now... :) Yes, WJ Long wrote more books, I might start another as a group project one of these days! I really like his writing

I do too. Would enjoy reading one as a solo if you find one that you think I would do a good job on.

Thanks for your work on librivox. This venue has opened a whole new world of books to me that I wasn't finding in a store or library. And I am a book a holic.

For the rest of the chapters you can use the shorter solo-disclaimer:
For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer: "Chapter [number] of [Book title]. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain. If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name]"
Say: "Title, by Author. [Translated by [translator]]. [Chapter]"

I'll adjust it and put it into the MW so it is right there for when you record :)

I might not get much done in the next two weeks, cause I'm in the middle of my diplomas and I need to study. I'm also the DPL for 2 other projects and I need to keep up with those as well. And finally, I'm going to a camp during the first week of July so I won't be able to get anything done while I'm there. Once I'm back though, I don't have much else going on for the summer and I'm hoping I can get at least 2 sections a week.
Just wanted to let you know.

Given all that, I'm still going to try to get some sections out when I'm not studying.
