This was one of those rare gems of a book that are like Lewis Hyde's "The Gift" or Keith Basso's "Wisdom Sits in Places." Kane gets at the heart of the interrelationship between stories, places, language and meaning. He's a beautiful writer and captures the heart of poetry like few people I've ever seen. I highly recommend this one!

does an important thing for us by describing the process in which myths evoke the Other world - the living non-human sentience, and elegantly describes how the the myth evokes rather than reports this Other world.
