The Jungle Book, Part 3, in which Mowgli hunts Shere Khan and returns to the pack.
I’ve finally finished recording part three of The Jungle Book, in which Mowgli hunts Shere Khan. Perhaps I’ll get it edited some other morning this week.
Now I’ll have to find something else to record to keep the boy happy.

The Jungle Book: Part 2, Kaa’s Hunting
(Part 1 is here, in case you missed it.)
In the second of three installments of The Jungle Book, Mowgli spends some time with the Bandar-Log – the Monkey people.
It’s just a hair over an hour (1:00:35) and is about 42MB.
Oh, and you should listen to the road song of the Bandar-Log again. Makes more sense once you know the whole story.
I’ve been a fan of Kipling, and of the Jungle Book, for as long as I can remember. It was an integral part of life at Turi, since the school had a close relationship with Lord Baden-Powell, who was also a big fan.
And, while I’m at it, here’s another teaser from The Jungle Book – Maxims of Baloo.
I’ve started recording the second part of The Jungle Book. I think I might just spend the whole day on this. Here’s a teaser: Hunting Song of the Seeonee Pack.
This is the first of three installments of The Jungle Book, by Rudyard Kipling. I expect that it will be many moons before I get the next one done, but I’ve been sitting on this one, unedited, for several months, and Ruth has been asking for it.
Ruth, if it’s too big to download, I’ll give you a CD when you get here.
Jungle Book, Chapter 1 – Mowgli’s Brothers. (45 Minutes, 41MB)
Long ago (or, as one might say, In the High and Far-off Times, Oh my Best Beloved) I recorded this for my Best Beloved. For a long time, there was only that one copy, on a CD, and no other. But today my delightful nephew requested that I record this very story, and, lo, I already had a copy.
Here it is – The Beginning of the Armadillos, by Rudyard Kipling.
After I got done recording it, I realized that it’s abridged, which accounts for some of the very un-Kipling phrasings. So maybe I’ll end up recording it again. Meanwhile, here’s Rikki Tikki Tavi, by Rudyard Kipling. (11Mb, 23 minutes)
