Hello :) I came here to re-home this little section. I hope it finds a new home here :9:
Title: Travellers before the Christian Era
Author: Jules Verne
Link: https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/snf072_travellers_verne_p81_128kb.mp3
Link to source: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/24777
Duration: 31:47


It was supposed to be section 1 in a new solo, but I gave up on the idea so I'm submitting it here so it doesn't go to waste. I'll be asking LLCaulkins, the PL for the aborted project, to spot-check it.
Come help us record The Deluge THE DELUGE IS BACK!

Yep, the intro/outro edits are good. This selection is PL OK :thumbs:

(not meaning to steal some of Soupy's thunder - this selection was already PL'd as a chapter for another project that was diverted over here)

"Audubon's Account of the New Madrid Earthquake," by M. L. Fuller

https://archive.org/details/jstor-1630685/page/n1/mode/1up

Thanks, Kevin! :) Very interesting!

Audubon's description of his horse's behavior is quite something! "He knew better than I what was forthcoming ... he placed one foot after another on the ground, with as much precaution as if walking on a smooth sheet of ice... he all of a sudden fell a groaning piteously, hung his head, spread out his four legs as if to save himself from falling, and stood stock still, continuing to groan. i thought my horse was about to die..."

Per Wikipedia, the New Madrid earthquakes "remain the most powerful earthquakes to hit the contiguous United States east of the Rocky Mountains in recorded history."

Needed something short to work out the sound in my recording space in the new house, so here is one for this collection -

Hi Kelly, Welcome to LibriVox and the Nonfiction Collection! :) We're pleased to have this selection from Mowatt Ritchie be part of the 72nd volume of SNF.

The SNF collection has a dedicated proof listener, Craig (Soupy), and he will PL your reading for you. If he finds anything that needs a tweak, he'll post here. Your file name will need a bit of correction, so eventually you'll need to re-upload, whether or not Craig finds anything that needs to be changed. We always need the volume number after the "snf" (i.e. snf072 for this volume), and there should be an underscore between your initials and the 128kb. To help you along, this is how your file name should look at the start of the upload:
snf072_gameofscandal_ritchie_kst_128kb

Mowatt Ritchie's comments on the bane of gossip are certainly as true today as they were in 1867! ... as is her antidote: "It lies in resolutely setting our faces against crediting any injurious rumor by the reflection that the story is, in all probability, an illustration of the marvellous metamorphoses wrought by that magical game of "scandal" which we, and all the world, are merrily playing." :)

Best wishes,

soupy

Thanks Kelly

That game of whispering is played by the news media with great success.

a few errors noted:

3:20 adder-stings are aimed with malicious purpose - you read are not aimed

4:10 can tie the gall up in the slanderous tongue – forgot to read the - I thought it should be changed because its part of the poem.

4:44 slight stumble on chiefly
