The challenge in presenting the Earthfolk vision and imagination is
that it calls you to examine your basic feelings, emotions and personal
experiences as the necessary step for you to analyze and evaluate your
own intellectual vision and imagination as well as that of us Earthfolk.
Volume 1 presents the Earthfolk vision and imagination, much like
Pathways 1 and 3 on the website.
Volume 2 is like Pathway 2 but then
it is not, as the narrative is guided by the author's personal history
and experiences as he lost
his Big Story and personal Story and then regained one, as an Earthfolk,
after his time in prison.
Which volume to read first? It all depends upon how you feel!
