The Life and Times of Kateri Tekakwitha The Lily of the Mohawks by Ellen Walworth (1832 - 1915).


This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-life-and-times-of-kateri-tekakwitha-the-lily-of-the-mohawks-by-ellen-walworth/

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha's lifespan of only about 24 years was spent in utter humility and penitence. In spite of her natural diffidence, she summoned the strength to assert her desire to become a Christian and to consecrate herself as a virgin, and even had the courage to take part in a dangerous escape from her tyrannical uncle. This biography of her life fills in many details of the history, geography, and important persons and events of Kateri's time and setting in New York and Canada from 1656 to 1680. Interestingly, these same years were a turning point for the Jesuit missionaries in New France, as their relations with the Indians underwent a change from suffering fearful persecution to achieving widespread conversion, thanks in at least a small part to the influence of the humble Kateri. The book's many first hand accounts by eye witnesses are a highlight. Readers may also appreciate the author's personal research and descriptions of the locations where all the events of Kateri's life took place. The author's greatest achievement in this book is that she helps the reader to understand and love Saint Kateri. ( Carol Pelster)

    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!

OK, your MW is ready for you! I shortened the file name that the template generator gave us, that one was way too long! If you want to shorten it anymore, feel free. We will wait here a day or so to see if we can pick a DPL.

May I be the DPL for this project? This looks interesting and I know very little about this saint.

Thanks,
Betty

I recorded the Preface today. I am not experienced enough to know whether it is standard procedure to include the preface? Do you know? If not, we can take it out. Ordinarily, I eschew prefaces. But this one wasn't too bad.

It is totally up to you whether you include the preface or not. I usually do, but some don't. Since this preface is a good one, I don't see any reason to not include it if you would like to.

I have uploaded sections 1 and 2. 19th century books seem to abound in geographical description.

I've PL'ed section 2 and there's a difference you might want to redo:

At 4:38 you might want to recheck the pronunciation of Schenectady in “. At Schenectady it lingers among islands in pretty, narrow ways..”
please refer to
https://howjsay.com/search?word=Schenectady

Let me know whether or not you want to change this.

The rest of the section is fine.

Thanks for filling me in on how to pronounce Schenectady. Oh, those Dutch words! I must admit that I am making up the pronunciation of the unknown Indian names and words as I go along. I hope they won't be too objectionable.
I uploaded a revised version of Chapter 1 with a revised pronunciation of Schenectady, and also Chapter 2.

Very fine reading. :)
