Seven and Nine years Among the Comanches and Apaches: ( - 0).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/seven-and-nine-years-among-the-camanches-and-apaches-an-autobiography-by-edwin-eastman/

Best described as a fictional autobiography, Clark Johnson authored the following adventure to promote the sale of his brand of Homeopathic elixir or commonly known as "Snake Oil".

Using the fictitious hero's of Edwin Eastman and his wife, Mr. Johnson penned a hair raising tale of a pioneer family wondering off the wagon trail and straight into the heart of hostile Indian country. All but Eastman and his wife were struck down in the ensuing battle. Captured, Edwin and Mrs. Eastman survived only to be imprisoned by the Comanche Nation, with Mrs. Eastman eventually being sold to the Apache's. Edwin lives among the Comanches for seven long and torturous years.

Demonstrating courage and tenacity, Edwin was taken in by the great medicine Chief Watkometkla. Allowed to live, Mr. Eastman gained valuable knowledge in the art of Homeopathic medicine and the Comanche way of life.

Through the adventure of his captivity Mr. Johnson describes Edwin's life in detail - the Native American culture, the rise of new leaders, the preparation for war, scenes of great battles, habits, lifestyle and so on. Unfortunately, the author's knowledge of these various traits were "borrowed" from a previous novel published in 1854 and written by T.D. Bonner titled "The Life and Adventures of James P. Beckworth".

Eventually escaping, Mr. Eastman made his way to Santa Fe, New Mexico. There he met with Ned Harding and started his two year adventure as a miner. Finally discovering new information about his wife, he and several members of his mining camp set forth to rescue her from the deadly Apache Nation.

Successful, the hero and heroine are reunited after nine long years. Quickly traveling back to the East and settling into their private lives.

I will set this up for you.

Edit: all set. Please shorten the file name...your choice but camanchesandapaches would be more manageable.
Do you have a DPL in mind? If not, you should add a tilde (~) to the title line. If you do, I will need to add them to the project.
Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi, Cstew :)

You do have an MC - Lynnet.

This title highly interests me. What kind of pace do you expect to upload files? I can't commit to a full flurry before two more weeks are over, but if your pace is relaxed, I can add your project on my PL roster.

P.S. Also, assuming it won't drive you nuts to have Lynette as your DPL with Lynnet as your MC. ;D (I'm sure it gives Lynnet as much a chuckle as it does me, so don't worry about us.)

Thank you, Lynette and Lynnet.

I try to get one or two chapters a week loaded. First one is ready. I do quite a bit of proof listening so, the recording's should be easy to PL.

I can do that pace, certainly. I'd like to do DPL here. :)

Hi, Claude,

LOVE THE VOICE!! (the one you asked about)

I'm thinking she may have been chuckling because it's an amazingly perfect capture of what such a voice would have sounded like, and evokes a strong visual image of the guy. (And that image is what is humorous.)

Definitely keep it. :)

Since you asked, the only constructive criticism that I think of is that the pauses between sentences might be a little shorter for future sections. Your reading pace of the words is extremely good (so don't speed up your reading itself), and your style is engaging. The tone seems spot on for this book.

I am so glad you didn't need a daily pace, and that I can DPL this project. A few months ago I read "Queer Person" by Ralph Hubbard, which piqued an interest in more books along the vein of life with Native American nations. I knew this title seemed familiar to me - and that's because I had bookmarked this selection over in Goodreads as something I wanted to read in the upcoming months. So - SCORE for me, getting this DPL gig. Not only was I wanting to read it already, but your reading is very pleasant. :)

Sorry Lynette, The chapters are much shorter than I thought. No need to rush yourself, however. Please work at the pace you are most comfortable.

Chapter 2 ready.

Hi, Claude!

Chapter 2 is PL OK (unless you want to change the intro to the short version).

It's completely your choice if you want to leave this section with the long one and do the short one from here out, or if you want to switch this one out for consistency. :)

What I really love about hearing you in these is that it sounds like a mid-20th century radio show instead of just reading.

Uh, not sure what you're referring to? What would be the short version?

Buried in the main post information, this part that I'm pasting below. It's nice that we don't have to read the long version for every single chapter in our solos.

START of recording (Intro):

"Chapter [number] of Seven and Nine years Among the Camanches and Apaches: An Autobiography by Edwin Eastman. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

If you wish, say:
"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Say:
"Seven and Nine years Among the Camanches and Apaches: An Autobiography by Edwin Eastman, by Edwin Eastman. [Chapter]"

For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

"Chapter [number] of Seven and Nine years Among the Camanches and Apaches: An Autobiography by Edwin Eastman by Edwin Eastman. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
If you wish, say:
"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Only if applicable, say:
"[Chapter title]"
