I'll take this book as a solo project, if that's OK.

Since I'm making this a solo project, I assume I don't have to use the whole disclaimer for subsequent chapters. In my last solo, the subsequent disclaimer was like this:
For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
o "Chapter [number] of Marooned in the Forest: The Story of a Primitive Fight for Life , by Alpheus Hyatt Verrill. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
o "[Chapter title]"

Is that correct for this one?

And we’re off! Preface is PL okay! Hopefully the book lives up to the expectations Verrill is so humbly setting up for it. :wink: I look forward to hearing the rest of your chapters.

I uploaded chapter one. At 4:18, the text reads: "I could not even I guess how many miles we had traveled." Assuming this is a mistake, I read it without the second "I."

Chapter 1 PL okay!

Chapter 2 at 16:14 “I wondered if in these woods there were edible roots or tubers” I am hearing “fruits or tubers” but doesn’t really change the meaning other than he is talking about vegetables and it is the only thing for this chapter so I am okay with passing.

You are super accurate with your reading - makes my job easy!

I don’t want to say I could survive in the woods by myself (because I couldn’t), but I at least know not to leave food unattended in the woods. :roll:

Chapters 3 and 4 PL okay. I wish I had half the confidence of this guy who exclaims how competent and prepared he is one paragraph after listing all his fails!

Chapter 5

10:10 “It was also difficult traveling, for fallen trees were scattered everywhere” I am hearing “fallen leaves were scattered” which I think changes the meaning.

Thank you. I’ll fix that. I stumbled over that section several times for some reason. :wink:

Chapter 5 is reloaded.
I really want to talk back to this guy—ask him questions or tell him to do something differently.
