There are many ways to place text in Scribus. Here is one way.

1. Make a large text frame
2. Right click inside the text frame.
3. Click on "Get Text" in the window that appears.
4. Select the .txt file you want to get. The file name should appear in the File Name 
box. Click on OK. The first part of the text should appear in the frame.
5. Since you are importing many pages of text you will have to place text frames on 
other pages and link the frames so the text flows to the other frames.

Good luck
