The World’s Story Volume XIII: The United States by Eva March Tappan (1854 - 1930).
This is the thirteenth volume of the 15-volume series of <i>The World’s Story: a history of the World in story, song and art</i>, edited by Eva March Tappan. Each book is a compilation of selections from prose literature, poetry and pictures and offers a comprehensive presentation of the world's history, art and culture, from the early times till the beginning of the 20th century. Part XIII is the second volume of the history of the United States, exploring topics from the Civil War, the settlement on the West Coast, and new scientific discoveries from the 19th and early 20th centuries.

    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!): https://archive.org/details/worldsstoryhisto13tapp/page/n11/mode/2up
    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.

      BC Admin ============================================
    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: viewtopic.php?p=6430#p6430

      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:


      START of recording (Intro)
      • For long sections, use the full Librivox disclaimer / For short sections, use the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer. I will note down the sections which need the full disclaimer in the MW.

      • Full disclaimer: “Section [number] of The United States. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

        “The World’s Story Volume XIII: The United States, edited by Eva March Tappan. Section [number]. [Title] by [author]” (as stated in the MW)


      • Short disclaimer: "Section [number] of The United States, read for LibriVox.org by [your name]. [Title] by [author] (as stated in the MW)

        END of recording
        • At the end of the section, say:
          "End of Section [number] This recording is in the public domain.”
        • If you wish, say:
          "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
        • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
          "End of The World’s Story. A history of the World in Story, Song and Art. Volume XIII: The United States, edited by Eva March Tappan."
        There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

        Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
      • AFTER recording
        Need noise-cleaning?
        Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
        Save files as
        128 kbps MP3
        worldstory_volume13_###_tappan_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ### is the section number (3-digits !) (e.g. worldstory_volume13_001_tappan_128kb.mp3)

        Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
        Transfer of files (completed recordings) Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

Since the first part of the history of the United States filled up faster than expected, I am going to launch Part 2 sooner than you may all have wished for :lol:

Storiey about more fights with the French, the English, the Spanish and of course the Civil War. But it's not all about warfare, some new discoveries in technology have been made, the West Coast has been explored and we are arriving in the 20th century !

For those who are new to the project, here are a few special rules for this project series:

1) I would like to have the footnotes included. Just put them right after the footnote marker, or wherever you think it fits well.
Say: “Footnote - [read footnote] - End of Footnote”.
This is for pure footnotes, not for the editor's intros. Please read those the way they are written in the text.

2) the explanations to the illustrations will again be included. They have their special sections. Please include every detail from the title, including, painter, time, or whatever is written in the book. Basically everything that is written in the MW. And please also include the line "photograph/painting, page xx" at the end of the title.

3) I have noted down in the MW where to read the long LV disclaimer. All sections under 3 pages long can use the short disclaimer. Check the first post on how to read the intros.

That's it...let's start :)

:lol: somehow I have deja-vu at the beginning of each WS project. Thank for you all your claims, Alan, I'll put them in. Have fun.

Unfortunately there is no stage play excerpt this time either. Bizarre...looks like the Americans don't write drama. :lol: Well they had enough to do to "settle".

Yes, I noticed that there have been no dramas in any of the 3 volumes on the Americas. Perhaps drama is not such a big part of their traditional culture as it is for European countries :hmm:
