The Ancient Allan by H. Rider Haggard (1856 - 1925).
This is the thrilling tale as told by Allan Quatermain of events in his life, or should we say his lives? By the use of a mystical herb, he is transported to a time when he was an Egyptian hunter and warrior fighting to free Egypt from the bonds of the Easterns and to win the heart of the lovely Amada. We learn with him the importance of honor and truthfulness in all our dealings. We also see the necessity of bravery in dealing with enemy forces as well as our love interests. ( Keith Salis)
All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-ancient-allan-by-h-rider-haggard/
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5746
  • 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!

Hi Keith, it's Dave. I put a ~ before the title in the subject line to let everyone know we're looking for a DPL. In a day or two we'll move out of the Launch Pad. Someone may offer to DPL by then.

Moving topic tp Going Solo forum. Offers to DPL are more likely once you have started to record.

Keith,
In the future when you add a chapter to the MW also post in this thread that there is a chapter ready for PL. I've added myself as DPL but it will take me a day or two to catch up. Listening to the first file now...nice read.
