The Trail to Yesterday by Charles Alden Seltzer (1875 - 1942).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-trail-to-yesterday-by-charles-alden-seltzer/
A girl from the East finds herself confronted with a strange type of man with an ancient grudge. Dakota, the man, first convinces her that he is a brute beyond redemption and then gradually wins her back. Before this happens there has been an attempted bribe, an attempted murder that seems the response to the bribe and a wild ride through the night, that ends at Dakota's cabin.(Summary by Richard Kilmer )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/27051
  • 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!

A little background on Dakota in that section. I don't know how badly to think of him, yet. :?:
