I received a note from David Widger at PG. The missing text has been inserted. :clap: The paragraph breaks have been omitted, but all the text is there.

I have done a couple of books for PG and have sent them a few corrections in the past, but is is usually just for a typo or a missing word or two. If others find errors in their texts, there is a contact email address for reporting errors on their website. They appreciate being notified of any errors uncovered and make the corrections ASAP.

here is the beginning of the book:

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/finnishlegends_01_eivind_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 9:21 min.

These are nice short sections, I'll be on the look-out if any get orphaned ;) I also know some of the original Kalevala stories, since I already participated in an English translation of the original verses a while back. Interesting mythology.

Thanks, Kitty - and thanks for picking up the orphans as well. The stories are short - I thought about combining some but this way the chapters tend to match the Kalevala version we have.

here are two more. Funny, those two I read for the other project as well. :lol: They sound different in verse though and these chapters are much easier to understand:

Recording time: 7:00 min.

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/finnishlegends_36_eivind_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 7:42 min.

I hope they both uploaded correctly, I am experiencing some trouble with the LV site at the moment. :?

thank you, Aniroo :9: and here is hopefully a lovely way to end it all.

Anne, I noticed that you scrambled sections 37 and 38 in the MW. The Departure of Wainamoinen is the final section and this is it:

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/finnishlegends_38_eivind_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 7:05 min.

Interesting Finnish version of Christ's birth and the end of the old religions.

Will try to finish Section 37 tomorrow.

Thanks for the file and for unscrambling the last files :D, The author obviously knew and loved the Kalevala and writes well, it's nice to come across well written young people's books that give the framework for the harder to follow spoken tales.
