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).

I haven't actually read this book yet so I will generate a summary and key words later.

Edit: I'm confused about the original publication date. Wikipedia and IMDB list a movie of the same name as having been released in 1919 and the version of the book I found in PG has a 1922 publication date. So was there an earlier version of the book that the movie was based on or did the book follow the movie? And do we care?

As long as the edition you use to record from is in the public domain, that's all that matters to us.

Chapter 1 is PL OK! :)

Chapter 2 PL notes:

@10:04 - Missing phrase (in red):

… the man discharged his rifle from the hip, and for the second time he missed the target. Sanderson, however, did not miss.

Liking what I've heard so far. Looking forward to the rest.

Thank you,

I am enjoying recording this book. It's been a while since I've exercised my western accent.
