Anecdotes of Big Cats and Other Beasts by David Alec Wilson (1864 - 1933).

Although David Alec Wilson is best known for his writings about Thomas Carlyle, he was a Scottish civil servant who spent much time in India. This collection of stories draw from those experiences.where tales of tigers, leopards, crocodiles, elephants and monkeys are part of the cultural fabric. These range from short vignettes to several multi-part stories, all sure to entertain. ( Larry Wilson)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/anecdotes-of-big-cats-and-other-beasts-by-david-alec-wilson/

    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!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/55255
    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.

After some discussion, the other interested party is going to do something else, so I would be most glad to have you join us as DPL. :)
This will likely be a longer project, and I hope we'll attract some new and beginning readers. So, there likely be some ups and downs, and need for some extra guidance, but we will see.

Thanks so much!

Amy will add you shortly.

Hi! This sounds like it will be interesting (some of the pronunciations of the location names may be ify) but can I take sections 3 - 8? Nancy

Sure! Well, we will just do the best we can with the names and locations. So, give it your best shot.
There are a few web sites where you can look up some pronunciations.

I've put your claims in the MW
Thank you!
