Pee-Wee Harris on the Trail by Percy Keese Fitzhugh (1876 - 1950).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/pee-wee-harris-on-the-trail-by-percy-keese-fitzhugh/

Volunteers outside the USA: Percy Keese-Fitzhugh died in 1950.. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years.
In this, the second Pee-Wee Harris adventure, we follow young Walter, B.S.A (Boy of Superior Appetite or Boy Scout of America, take your pick) as he encounters robbers, proves himself a good friend and follows a trail of footprints into trouble. ( Lynne Thompson)
    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/15750
    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

May I have 2-5, also. It may take me a bit to get to them as I'm feeling poorly, but this looks like such a fun project!
