Abstract:

This is a world seen through animist eyes: as friendly to human life as it was to the life of gazelles, lions, lizards, mosquitos, jellyfish, and seals - not a world in which humans lived like tresp assers who must conquer and subdue an alien territory. It's a world in which humans have a place in the community of life - not as rulers but as equa ls. This is not an ancient world or a lost world. It exists as surely today as it ever did - for those who have eyes to see it.
