MARK TWAIN by Archibald Henderson (1877 - 1963).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/mark-twain-by-archibald-henderson/
Many writers have penned studies of Mark Twain's life and work through the years. Twain authorized this biography having met and hosted the writer, Archibald Henderson on a few occasions. Henderson considered this work to be an homage to one of his biggest idols, who guided him through his youth and adolescence. He writes, "It is an appreciation originating in the heart of one who loved Mark Twain’s works for a generation before he ever met Samuel L. Clemens. It is an interpretation springing from the conviction that Mark Twain was a great American who comprehensively incorporated and realized his own country and his own age as no American has so completely done before him." ( John Greenman)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/6873
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): wordperfect



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

This biography, while not as well-known as the one that came next (Mark Twain: A Biography. Complete by Albert Bigelow Paine) should be a fun "listen" (and "read" for me). The project will have no hard time-line, so will be an easy "romp" through Twain's life and times.
Anyone want to proof-listen????

Helen,
sorry about this but on looking at the book again, I think I need to put the contents and 1901 quote into the preface section.
I'll add it all on and send it in again....new length, etc.

Except we limit file lengths to what can fit on an audio CD. It's got to be 74 minutes (1:14) or fewer.

There must be a dividing place, even if it's not right in the middle.
