About Ranger

Cherish the magical spirit of Christmas and give back to a beautiful cause. 

On a mission to use words to make the world a better place, Alan Salisbury, a retired Army general, wrote The Legend of Ranger, The Reindeer Who Couldn’t Fly: a story about a reindeer who seeks to fulfill his lifelong dream of flying and discovers the ultimate life lesson of believing in yourself. 

But it didn’t stop there! Salisbury brought the inspiring story to life with a beautiful folk song, audio book, adorable toy, and Santaland board game. The complete collection is packed with love and opportunities to bond with the little ones in your life at Christmastime. 

The best part: each and every goodie gives back. 100% of the profits from everything in the Ranger collection go to the Antonia J. Giallourakis Endowed Fund in Art Therapy for Children with Cancer at Massachusetts General Hospital, which educates and empowers children to create art that supports children who have cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. For many young patients, this fund opens their eyes for the first time to the wonder of art.

Whether you’re looking for a heartfelt holiday gift or new ways to connect with loved ones at home, Ranger’s story is meant to be shared and treasured, Christmas after Christmas. 


About Alan Salisbury, the author of The Legend of Ranger, The Reindeer Who Couldn’t Fly:

Alan Salisbury, a retired Army general and former IT executive, found a new purpose in retirement: using words to raise money for philanthropic causes. While storytelling may seem like a far departure from his earlier work, he is using this time as a tribute to his mother, who was a teacher and also had a passion for songwriting and poetry. He hopes his work will inspire children to embrace their creative sides, which is why he’s proud to give 100% of profits to the  Antonia J. Giallourakis Endowed Fund in Art Therapy for Children with Cancer
