Short Stories Of William Henry Harrison Murray by William Henry Harrison Murray (1840 - 1904).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/short-stories-of-william-henry-harrison-murray-by-william-henry-harrison-murray/
Murray (1840-1904) was a sometime clergyman, journalist, and purveyor of the outdoor life. His books did much to popularize the virtues of outdoor experience, especially in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. Here are stories, some humorous some serious, of the out-of-doors, of love between man and woman, man and horse, man and dog, teacher and acolyte, of wisdom and foolishness. This recording is a selection of his short stories from “The Busted Ex-Texan And Other Stories" (1889), “How Deacon Tubman And Parson Whitney Kept New Years And Other Stories" (1888) and “A Ride With A Mad Horse In A Freight-Car" (1898).

    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!

MW coming up.

edit: I made a small change in the summary by moving the publication year outside the quotation mark. My resident grammarian suggested that only the title should be inside the quotation marks. Let me know if any changes are needed.

1 PL OK.

I noticed that you did not say "selected" in the intro. Should we officially drop that word from the title?

yes, let's drop "selected" from the title. I considered it for awhile and then decided against it. Thanks.
