The Place Beyond The Wind by Harriet Theresa Comstock (1860 - 1925).

Prescilla Glenn lives in Kenmore, a place which the canadian-indians call "the in-place, the place beyond the wind". There are so many troditions, so many things to be proud of, yet Prescilla is different. She dreams of living in the big city. Would she be able to fulfill her dream? If she does, would she leave her troditions behind or remember where she came from?The novel includes discriptions of the troditions and sproling nature, of the people of Kenmore, and of Prescilla herself. Many people go far away from home to fulfill some or other dream, but home is always there. The novel is perfect for everybody, including fanns of Jeane Straton Porter. ( Stav Nisser.)
    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/18488
    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.

Do what ever you want with the wordcounts. I asked for extra sections, and there is an introduction before the contants.

Hi! Here is the recording for the Forward -

https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/placebeyond_01_comstock_128kb.mp3 - 4:36

NOTE: MW says Introduction however the book calls it a Forward in the text and TOC so I recorded Forward. Perhaps the MW can be updated?
