Pep: The Story Of A Brave Dog by Clarence Hawkes (1869 - 1954).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/pep-the-story-of-a-brave-dog-by-clarence-hawkes/
This 1922 adventure story for youth and dog lovers will delight anyone with just a little suspension of disbelief. Sentimental and anthropomorphic, it’s still a good read/listen for those who would appreciate how a devoted dog saved his physician master’s life during World War I. Clarence Hawkes, crippled and blind, was a prolific, popular writer, well-known for his nature stories in the twentieth century. ( David Wales)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/59909
  • 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!

Well, once again the chapters are shorter than I originally thought, so I have decided to put together in each file.

Lots of anthropomorphizing. :roll:

Hi Dave, If you find no corrections to be made, we are finished recording this book. I corrected spelling in one descriptor and perhaps another descriptor might be added "youth story" or some such. Thanks for your help.
