Explores stories of Earth Creation -- how the rivers, lakes, oceans, mountains, valleys, clouds, sky, and first beings emerged into the world -- with ideals of sustainability and social cohesion present inside each tale. Passed on orally for centuries, these stories inspire us to respect the natural world, other people, and ourselves. The Earth Creation stories of tribal peoples, many of them re-told here for the first time, illustrate humanity's fragile position in an enormous wheel of life. Stories That Crafted the Earth is endorsed by Survival International which represents the interests of indigenous tribes around the world. The logo of this respected international orgaization will appear on every copy of the book.
