Tales of the Game Rangers Vol. 1

By: John Edmond
Publisher: Roan Antelope Music

About the CDs

Tales of the Game Rangers Volumes 1-4 were conceived by Folksinger John Edmond whose upbringing in the wilds and pioneering spirit led to the birth of this project. The CDs are very entertaining as well as educational: real animal and bird sounds are used throughout the story-telling and song-singing. The stories are narrated by Game Scout Tongorara, an ancient man of the bush who hails from Plumtree in Zimbabwe and has worked as a farmhand, tracker and game scout. Some of the stories are traditional ones that John heard as a boy and others are original tales created by John himself. The songs are all composed by him and are woven around the tales in intricate detail. With songs such as 'How did the leopard get his spots', 'Never monkey around with a giraffe', 'Where do the elephants go' and 'Flick of the hippo's tail', it is clear that the objective of the series is to create awareness and educate whilst providing wholesome family entertainment at the same time. Tales of the Game Rangers has received wide acclaim in educational, theatrical, tourist and conservationist circles around the world.
