Publisher's Summary

Here's the first part of our Briar Patch Fable trilogy. Through musical fantasy, we express the reality of life's "oneness"...revealing that the basic needs of both humans and other creatures on this planet are the same: air, water, food, shelter, privacy, and the ritual of song and dance. Our interdependency is clear. As one species is threatened, so are we all.

The hometown of rabbits, frogs, woodchucks, skunks, and Wiley Fox is threatened by "bullydozers". Two children, with Rufus and Nellie Rabbit, rally the animals to stage a startling demonstration, declaring their rights to the human citizens. A suspenseful town meeting decides the fate of the Briar Patch (based on real happenings in Sandwich, Massachusetts):

Included in this program:

  • The Briar Patch Is Threatened
  • Kate & Willy Have A Plan
  • From So Good To So Bad
  • Taking Less To Keep It Wild
  • A Parade To Save the "Patch"
  • Town Meeting!

The Briar Patch Fable was first written and produced as a musical play in 1974 to celebrate the purchase by the Town of Sandwich, Massachusetts of 52 acres of catbriars for conservation...the real Briar Patch. The story is even more relevant today.
