An exploration of the secret strength of storytelling, in which Phil Cousineau addresses the central theme that runs through all his work, the transportive power of words. Written as a mosaic of meditations, this lyrical book ranges from a twelve-thousand-year-old Aboriginal tale to a mystical Viking story, a venerable myth from the Seneca, and a modern parable from the world of house painters in San Francisco.
