It was after the Grateful Dead's Rainforest Benefit Concert at Madison Square Garden in 1988 that we were inspired to create our first environmental children's book with narration and music, Panther Dream: A Story of the African Rainforest. Now, this award-winning book is on videocassette, along with our personal introduction and closing about the importance of the rainforest and the threats it is facing.
Join us on a journey with the young African boy, Lokuli, and the mysterious black panther. Experience the rainforest's beauty and excitement, and learn the wisdom it has to teach. The story, images, and sounds are all based upon reality and are woven together to encourage our imagination.
Portions of the proceeds from the sale of this video will be donated to Rainforest Action Network to support its conservation efforts, but there is still much that we can do. Please watch the video and learn how you, too, can help."
