I seem to be drawn to this topic. I've uploaded a recording from a visit to Panama while the canal was still being built.

Hello,
I have attempted a recording.
Author: John Bach McMaster (1852-1932).
Title: A Brief History of the United States
Link to text: http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/6896/pg6896-images.html
And below is my audio recording ready for PLing:
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/travelcollectionshortnonfiction_11_various_128kb.mp3 Time: 09:05
Kind regards,
Chad
Chad, I'm going to mark this as needing a bit of editing and then a Spot PL, if you don't protest. I think the additional pronunciation of the place names, as indicated in the text (I'm aware) are unnecessary and a bit disorienting. (These occur around 3:50 and 5:50 if I got that right.)
Chad, just a polite reminder. We're almost done with this collection and your help will be most appreciated!

And thank you again for taking part.
Minimal availability until Monday night or Tuesday. My apologies.

We've almost completed this collection. It can be moved to Reader's Found if you wish.

I still have to scurry around a bit to get complete author biographical information, however. I shouldn't be too long in that.

Hi Kevin, I agree, I have now removed these additional pronunciations of place names.
Hope this recording is much better now: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/travelcollectionshortnonfiction_11_various_128kb.mp3 Time: 09:00
