FLOWERS IN THE SKY – a celebration of southern African starlore
This is an eye opening book. It provides confirmation for the growing realisation that indigenous lore and belief was based on an understanding of the natural world that surpasses our present understanding. It provides a shift in perspective that is unsettling and illuminating. Hopefully Clarissa Hughes will be encouraged to share more insights that lie in the legends of Africa. The legends and fairy stories of Europe have been studied in depth and give deep insights into human nature. But no continent provides the world with such a vast array of wild animal nature and here is where we have to stand still and listen so that we can understand the relationship between man and animal to the degree that we will be able to continue existence together.
