In the summer of 1992, deep in the woods of New Hampshire, campers gather around a towering bonfire; They howl at the moon, stamp their feet upon the ground, and recite the Law of the Jungle. Rudyard Kipling’s short-story masterpiece The Jungle Book gets all tangled up with letters sent home from sleep-away camp… then set to the tunes from Harry Nilsson's hit album Nilsson Schmilsson. This is storytelling like you’ve never heard before before. “Oh hear the call!— Good hunting all— That keep the Jungle Law!”
