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 trespassers 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 equals — with the paths of all held together in the hand of god.
Adam, a hunter-gatherer standing at the threshold of human history, passes the gift of wisdom to his son, Abel. Together they observe the natural world around them, learning from the actions of predator and prey, the wind and the sea. Using parables and fables, Adam teaches his son how to live in harmony with the world around him, thus gaining an appreciation for the Law of Life. Theirs is not a lost world. It exists as surely today as it ever did — for those who have eyes to see it.
