The Jungle Girl by Gordon Casserly (1869 - 1947).


Mrs Norton and Mr Wargrave in British India. More to come after I read the book. ( Lynda Marie Neilson)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/14087/14087-h/14087-h.htm
  • 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!

    ============================================
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of The jungle girl. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "The jungle girl, by Gordon Casserly. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The jungle girl by Gordon Casserly. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • 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 jungle girl, by Gordon Casserly. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  • Example filename junglegirl_##_casserly_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. junglegirl_01_casserly_128kb.mp3)

I haven't changed the author's name. When I open the e-book link though it seems to show the name as Gordon Casserly.

You are right - seems on the website I looked him up on he name is placed spelled backwards!

I will fix it.

Hi Dave -

I have not forgotten about this solo - it is my next project - my previous solo is just taking me longer to complete than I estimated....

Hi Dave -

Still working on finishing my other solo and other readings - however I am making headway and reducing my load as I am going on vacation in late November/December.

I think I am going to download the book and do the recordings at that time. I am not sure how much Internet access I will have so I might upload them along the way or just upload when I get home. Part of the time I will be on a cruise and I will not be uploading as their connections are SLOW and EXPENSIVE! :(
