So many, many things have changed since the first human beings walked the Earth. Our clothing is different, our homes are different, our food is different. We drive cars now and email each other on computers.
But a long, long time ago, the very first story was born. Story has stayed with us and been a natural, wondrous way of understanding and holding onto what we've learned about being alive on Earth.
This book is a celebration of story, told from the point of view of a story, as it has evolved from cave paintings, to papyrus and the beyond to the printing press. It also explores how important it is for societies to make their stories available to everyone regardless of socioeconomic status.
The way we share story keeps changing but story itself remains an essential, valuable treasure that human beings need both to find our way in the world and to connect with others.
Live your story and share your story. Long live story!!!
