The South American Republics, Part II by Thomas Cleland Dawson (1835 - 1912).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-south-american-republics-part-ii-by-thomas-cleland-dawson/
This history begins when Pizarro and Almagro, Valdivia and Benalcazar, led their desperadoes across the Isthmus to the conquest, massacre, and enslavement of the prosperous and civilised millions who inhabited the Pacific coast of South America. It ends with the United States opening a way through that same Isthmus for the ships, the trade, the capital of all the world; with American engineers laying railroad iron on the imperial highway of the Incas; with British bondholders forgiving stricken Peru's national debt; with their debtor bravely facing the fact of bankruptcy, and turning over to them all its railways. (from the Preface, available in the source text together with the bibliography and numerous pictures)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/37950
  • 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!

Welcome back :)
Volume 2 will proceed more slowly, first of all because I'll have less time for recording and secondly, because the sections, especially in the first 2 countries, are much longer.

Section 5 is in. It was recorded early in the morning, so let me know if my voice sounds any different.

The first few minutes, your voice is a little rougher than normal, but I don't think it needs any correction.

I would suggest a notch filter set at 800 Hz to get rid of the intermittent low toned whistle in the recording. :)
