  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/37925
  • 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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin Genres for the project: *Non-fiction; *Non-fiction/Biography & Autobiography; *Non-fiction/War & Military

    Keywords that describe the book: Tennessee, davey crockett, david crockett

Hi Bill,

I'll MC for you. This is all set up in the database. I'll leave this thread here for a day or two to see if we pick up a DPL before moving over the Going Solo.

Please note I've edited the suggested filenames to a shorter version. :)

I've also changed the text link to the main gutenberg page for the book which is what we use in the catalog.
