Rhythms of the Tarkine - a natural history adventure, Ron Nagorcka & Sarah Lloyd
"What a lovely experience this CD and book package offer. Ron Nagorcka and Sarah Lloyd have worked together to provide the sensory delights of a wild and wonderful part of Tasmania - the Tarkine. They spent several weeks in different seasons of 2003 and 2004, exploring the Tarkine, recording the sounds and documenting the natural history. Sarah tells the story of their adventures, the characters they meet, both human and animal and much of the human history of the area. Most of the book describes the natural history of the Tarkine, enhanced by an array of superb quality photos of plants and animals. ... But the uniqueness of this presentation is the CD. Ron has captured wonderful calls and sounds of animals from the coastline to the rainforest of the Tarkine. Did you know that the native dung beetle made sounds? I won't even attempt to describe what they sound like with words. Interspersed with the sound recordings are Ron's soundscapes and music based on various calls of Tarkine creatures. This is a CD you can put on for pure enjoyment. But it can also be used to learn species calls. Each of the more than 90 tracks have the species identified in the booklet. It is very easy to use in this way. Queries from children and visitors of "What is that one?" can be quickly looked up. Thoroughly recommended for your own enjoyment but also an excellent present for loved ones. review by Therese Smith, first published in Land For Wildlife newsletter 2004.
