Wild Tales — Strange But True Adventures in the Natural World

With Storyteller and Naturalist Doug Elliott

Online Video

School of Integrated Living presents Doug Elliott, well-known storyteller, humorist and naturalist!

Have you ever had a swarm of bees fall on your head, been swallowed by a snake, dined on coon, or read God’s handwriting on the back of a trout? Well, Doug Elliott has, and he tells you all about it. This program is flavored with natural history, traditional lore, outrageous personal narratives, regional dialects, soulful harmonica songs and more than a few belly laughs.

This concert was recorded June 18, 2021 at Earthaven Ecovillage and also features Keith Ward on guitar and Brian Cannon on percussion.
