Chronicles of America: Elizabethan Sea-Dogs (Volume 03) by William Wood (1864-1947).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/elizabethan-sea-dogs-by-william-wood/

Citizen, colonist, pioneer! These three words carry the history of the United States back to its earliest form in 'the New World called America.' But who prepared the way for the pioneers from the Old World and what assured their safety in the New? The title of the present volume, Elizabethan Sea-Dogs gives the only answer. It was during the reign of Elizabeth, the last of theTudor sovereigns of England, that Elizabethans won the command of the sea under the consummate leadership of Sir Francis Drake, the first of the modern admirals. Drake and his companions are known to fame as Sea-Dogs. They won the English right of way into Spain's New World. And Anglo-American history begins with that century of maritime adventures and naval war in which English sailors blazed and secured the long sea-trail for the men of every other kind who found or sought their fortunes in America--Prefatory Note
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/chroniclesofamer03john
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    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!

Ah, I see you're ready with the next one! In future, go ahead and put my initials in the thread subject line (so it shows on the thread listing).

I did a quick look-over, and it looks A-OK to start recording. I'll get the MW set up later this evening.

You will notice that I have changed the title to Elizabethan Sea-Dogs. I misread or saw it somewhere listed the other way or something, but the title is in fact Elizabethan Sea-Dogs. Jim :oops:

And I totally missed it, too, even with going to view the source material. :cry: It's fixed behind the scenes now.
