Tarzan and the Golden Lion by Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875 - 1950).

Volunteers outside the USA: Edgar Rice Burroughs died in 1950. His work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years.
Tarzan returns to Opar to bolster his fortune, which has been depleted due to the war effort, and encounters natives who have been enslaved by a race of intelligent gorillas. With the help of his trained lion, and the natives themselves, Tarzan initiates an attempt to restore Queen La to power. Book 9 in the Tarzan series. ( Klaatu)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=njp.32101013277098;view=2up;seq=8
  • 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!

I don't know how accurate this is but PGA says
"Tarzan and the Golden Lion," Photoplay edition, Grosset & Dunlap, New York, 1927" and that is what the site you give says it uses (PD for you and me, but not LV ).

I'll get it set up .....
Done
I assume you can get into the MW , but just in case I'll include the link for that too. You'll need to enter chapter titles, I've done the first one as an example

Now that you are a soloist, you will be your own BC (book coordinator). That means that you will enter the links to your recordings into the Magic Window (MW) (the scrolling window in the first post).
Here is a document that explains how to get into the MW the first time:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxWB83bbALTQYjlENGZ0SVJUWWs

And here is another document that explains how to keep the MW up to date etc:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kVj409nG_E0XJ5UrrcL7EVx7Qyx-2UQ7dbw4mINi3XQ

All yours, yell if you need help.
And have fun.

Well, if someone else is doing the same book, then I don't see any point in doubling up on the effort.

I'd like to retract this project.

It's up to you, but we do allow choice of voice. It's unusual to have 2 running at the same time but this only became PD on the 1st January and Tarzan is well known. Not all projects that get started get finished either, especially first solos, it's not everyone's thing and hard to know until you try
I won't abandon it yet in case you change your mind. If you don't, there are many projects in the readers wanted forum that would love you to sign on to read a chapter and maybe find another author you'd like?
