WHAT IT IS TO BE HUMAN takes you to out-of-the-way places in Asia & the Pacific where people have few possessions & fewer complications but a different outlook on life & death, the essence of human existence & survival. A rare record of the lives of people we have almost eradicated--as we exterminate weeds & animals that compete for the resources we think we own. What can we learn from people who survived for thousands of years without violence, without destroying their environment? If nothing else, a sense of balance & harmony, & we can learn again to live AS PART OF THIS PLANET. WHAT IT IS TO BE HUMAN is an extraordinary journey into the villages where one man recovered his deepest humanity & his deep connection with this earth. "Hope lies in our ability to bring back to awareness WHAT IT IS TO BE HUMAN." Readers report a resonance with the simple people whose stories make this book. Inspiration & awakening. Periwinkle, P.O. Box 1389, Freeland, WA 98249.
