Leaves from Australian Forests by Henry Kendall (1839 - 1882).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project http://librivox.org/leaves-from-australian-forests-by-henry-kendall/
This is a collection of poems by Australian poet Henry Kendall. It is the second volume of his collected poems, and contains some of his most widely-known verses, such as "Bell-Birds", "The Hut by the Black Swamp", and "The Last of His Tribe". This collection is also the work on which Kendall's particular reputation for nature poetry was first based. ( Carolin)
    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.
      Please note that we handle a one month deadline for poetry projects!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/962 - this is volume two, so the text begins after poems and songs!
    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

      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!

I can see some of the Australian place-names in these poems being a bit of a pronunciation stumbling-block. Here are a few annotations.

"Kiama" - say "KYE-ama" (both a's are short)

"Wollongong" - The correct way to pronounce it is "WOOL-on-gong", however most people now say "woollen gong".

"Coogee" - say "COULD-gee".

I imagine there are some others, but those jumped out of the TOC. If anyone has any queries, I'm sure whichever Australians are on the forum at the time would be only too happy to help.

Cheers,
Son of the Exiles
