An engaging travelogue, written conversationally among two youths and their guide and mentor.

Subtitle: Adventures of Two youths in a Journey to Northern and Central Mexico, Campeachey, and Yucatan, with a Description of the Republics of Central America and of the Nicaragua Canal.

Hi Scott. The chapter summaries in the MW are fine for now, but will need to be deleted from the titles in the MW before this is cataloged so they don't end up in the title tags. Moving this to Readers Wanted.

Thank you, and welcome to LibriVox.

Please tell us what name you want us to use for your catalog page. I have noted that you want to do section 32, but I can't assign the section for you until we make your page.

Also, it is recommended that you do the Preliminary Test to make sure your set up and technical specs are adjusted before you do a full-size recording. You'll find a link for that in the Newbie Guide to Recording, linked near the top of this project's main post.

Appreciate your help here!
Scott
