A fascinating exploration of the many parallels that exist among different cultures in terms of how they perceive nature shows how time and distance make no difference in the unity that people have as they celebrate nature and the sacred.

Book News
McLuhan, an author and filmmaker, draws on ancient and contemporary sources to examine the significance of the Earth from the perspective of six diverse cultures from Aboriginal Australia, Japan, ancient Greece, Africa, South America, and Native North America. She demonstrates that there are more similarities than differences in how people of different cultures celebrate the sacred nature of the Earth in literature, mythology, religion, and art. Includes hundreds of traditional and modern examples of literature and art, illustrated with b&w and color photos. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
