Review Text

  • By David on November 21, 2010

    One does not understand people, or a culture, until one knows the stories. Stories lay down neural pathways, shape perception, and function as the reality-interpreting software of a culture. Translation is rather like taking 3D life, and putting it up as shadows in Plato's cave. The visual images help here. Coyote stories are very engaging. One adaptation of them is curiously available from Warner Brothers- perhaps you remember the Coyote and the Roadrunner. This is another adaptation. It is very helpful to enter other cultures' perspectives, to understand how arbitrary many cultural choices are. This book is worth it just for that, and worth it also for the engaging stories it tells.
