With Her in Ourland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860 - 1935).

Third in the trilogy of the feminist classics, after Moving the Mountain and Herland. It was published serially in Perkins Gilman's periodical The Forerunner. In Herland, three American young men discover a country inhabited solely by women, who were Parthenogenetic, and had borne only girl children for two thousand years; they marry three of the women. Two of the men and one woman leave the country of Herland to return to America; Jeff Margrave remaining with his wife, Celis, a willing citizen; Terry O. Nicholson being expelled for bad conduct; and Ellador electing to go with her husband, Vandyck Jennings. We now continue the story, told from the viewpoint of Vandyck Jennings, as they return to America. (Summary from the text and by TriciaG)

  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.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!):
    ...PDF (20.4 MB) containing the pages of the story combined together: https://drive.google.com/open?id=14vHOWoW94sL5Bzhi5YJmqwE5cKkShovM
    ...Original source: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015066103535;view=1up;seq=7
    .
  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.

Hi Tricia,
I'd be interested in trying Chapter 3 - however in the subject line I noticed it indicates "Grp"... ?
thanks,

GRP must means it's a group project as opposed to a solo.

I'll put you in for chapter 3. Thank you! 8-)

can I claim chapters I and II to start with? I've never heard of these stories before but they sound strangely fascinating.

You bet! Thanks for claiming. :)

I hadn't read them before, either. I found this as a very old book suggestion and launched it to finish off the trilogy.

I've added you in. Thanks! 8-)

(If I may be so bold, I would like to advise you to do some more recording before claiming more sections in projects. I see you're now up to 13 claimed chapters, which is probably enough for now. Submit a couple, then claim a couple more. They aren't going to be all snatched up before you are able to claim them.) :wink:
