An author and poet, welcomed for his reflective and thought-provoking style, retells 10 stories from different cultures – from around the world and through the ages – which each highlight the importance of taking care of the world.

These stories – from ancient Greece, the Far East, the Celts, Africa, Greenland, Russia, China, Japan, South America and ancient Israel – afford wonderful opportunities for Jane Ray’s paradisiacal paintings of trees and flowers, animals and birds… in short, all creation.
