The Early Cave-Men by Katharine Elizabeth Dopp (1863 - 1944).

This project can be found in our catalog at https://librivox.org/the-early-cave-men-by-katharine-elizabeth-dopp/ :clap:
The People Who Wanted To Live in Caves. This little book takes us back to the time when our ancestors lived, or wanted to live in caves. Unfortunately the caves off that time were mostly used by large animals like the Sabre Toothed Tiger and bears who could easily kill and eat our ancestors. Thus the subtitle of this book is The Age of Combat. This book, aimed at children, tries to show how certain things things could have taken place to enable our species to eek out a living alongside the much stronger beasts such as why we wanted to live in caves, the hazards and rewareds of living in caves; the taming of fire, and how early tools were invented. This book follows on The Tree Dwellers and is itself followed by The Later Cave-Men. . ( Phil Chenevert)
    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/50057
    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.

Yes I am and you may have those three sections. Please note that each section has three of the little chapters in it. And ask if the instructions areen't clear. Have fun !

Thanks! The only question I have is for the intro to each section you have "Chapter [number] of The Early Cave-Men" - should it be "Section [number]..." since we go on to explain the chapter numbers after the librivox disclaimer?

No, you say the section number at the end, but not the begenning. The actual wording is in the first post. Say, " The Early Cave-Men, by Katharine Elizabeth Dopp. [Chapter number then title] for example the first chapter would be [Chapter 1 Why People Wanted to Live in Caves]" At the end of the chapter read "Thnigs To Do" followed by Chapter 2, Things to Think about then the chapter title How the Fire Clan Got a Cave. and like this for Chapter 3.". I know it's kinda confusing but hopefully it will work.

That would be great! Thanks. :D Note that I'm including three short chapters in each section so the wording of the intro and exits may be strange. Lte me know if they make sense to you, OK?

So you are having the readers say the chapter number at the beginning of the section and the section number at the end of the section? Hmm... that is a little confusing, but the format of the book is such that it is difficult to organize into sections. What if the section number was stated at the beginning and the end of the section? For example, "Section 1 of The Early Cave-Men. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org. The Early Cave-Men, by Katharine Elizabeth Dopp. Section 1." Then, the reader could say the chapter number and name, for example, "Chapter 1 - Why People Wanted to Live in Caves," followed by the chapter itself, then "Chapter 2 - How the Fire Clan Got a Cave," etc. At the end of the recording, the reader could simply say, "End of Section 1." Just my 2 cents.

Cadastra, what you said just above is what I was getting at earlier as well. I just recorded section 1, so I can redo the first sentence and add in the Ch 1 Part later, but saying chapter 1 initially is misleading where section may make more sense. Just my opinion. Let me know!

Yes, the section numbre should be said at the beginning and at the end. I probably am responsible for the confusion there. What you suggest is exactly what should be done.

Excellent. Those three sections (9 chapters) are all yours. I had to make the intros a bit convoluted but other than that they are easy to read. :D
