The Trail of the Tramp by Leon Ray Livingston (1872 - 1944).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/the-trail-of-the-tramp-by-leon-ray-livingston/


Quote:
This book, written by the famous hobo and author, Leon Ray Livingston aka A-No. 1, is built on his own experiences on the road. The first chapter of the book sets up a framing narrative, where Canada Joe promises to tell a story which is not "the same, old, time-worn tales of how slick hoboes beat trains, nor fabled romance concerning harmless wanderlusters, nor jokes at the expense of the poor but honest man in search of legitimate employment, but I shall relate to you a rarely strange story that will stir your hearts to their innermost depths and will cause you to shudder at the villainy of certain human beings, who, like vultures seeking carrion, hunt for other people's sons with the intention of turning them into tramps, beggars, drunkards and criminals--into despised outcasts." Come listen to his story! ( kathrinee)






    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/12424
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      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!

Welcome to LibriVox! That would be wonderful :) Before you start, please do a 1 minute test http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test to make sure that your technical settings are correct. Also, I'll need to know what you would like as your catalog name -- it can be your forum name, your real name, or something different :)

Hello Kathrinee,
I have just stumbled upon this project and I see that no one has claimed any sections yet.
Please allow me to start the "ball rolling" & ask for chapters 5 "The call of the city"
& chapter 6 "The golden rule hotel"

Hello Diana,

Unfortunately, sections 1 and 2 were claimed by someone else just above you in the thread -- but there are lots of open sections! Would you like to do sections 3 and 4 instead? :D

Hi Katherine,
