Laramie Holds The Range by Frank Spearman (1859 - 1937).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/laramie-holds-the-range-by-frank-h-spearman/
As with most of Frank Spearman's novels (and non-fiction), "Laramie Holds the Range" is set in the West during our early railroad days.. He used the best of the illustrators of the day, such as N.C. Wyeth. Occasionally, a character would appear in more than one of his stories. The strongest elements of his novels, including this one, are his outstanding descriptions of the landscape and the physical elements of his characters. In this story, Kate Doubleday travels West to join her father, whom she has never seen. Laramie is a mountain rancher, who is opposed by Kate's father and all of the large cattlemen of the range. While it is a familiar struggle, Spearman effectively weaves a plot that holds the reader's interest. ( BobR (Bob Rollins, Augusta GA))
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/23242
    .
  2. 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!

    • Say:

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Laramie Holds The Range by Frank Spearman. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:

      .
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Laramie Holds The Range, by Frank Spearman. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

I am ready to roll with this book. Maryann Spiegel has been by coordinator, and Craig was last my proofreader. I am in need of both.
