In Polynesia, we set sail with navigators whose ancestors settled the Pacific 10 centuries before Christ. In the Amazon, we meet the descendants of a true lost civilization, the Peoples of the Anaconda. In the Andes, we discover that the earth really is alive, while in Australia we experience Dreamtime, the all-embracing philosophy of the first humans to walk out of Africa. We then travel to Nepal, where we encounter a wisdom hero, a Bodhisattva, who emerges from 45 years of Buddhist retreat and solitude. And, finally, we settle in Borneo, where the last rain forest nomads struggle to survive.
Understanding the lessons of this journey will be our mission for the next century. For at risk is the human legacy - a vast archive of knowledge and expertise, a catalog of the imagination. Rediscovering a new appreciation for the diversity of the human spirit, as expressed by culture, is among the central challenges of our time.

Further enlightenment for modern truth seekers
Written clear and concise, Davis delivered a collection of stories that inspire and awe someone sitting under artificial lights, chipping away at their paperwork or taking the underground to their workplace. Marvel in the ingenuity and sheer wealth of knowledge he uncovers in the peoples under and suffocated by the West. As a plus, short enough to keep one entertained without a need for a break.

An Important book for contemporary issues
Narrator is clear and has a comfortable voice, easy to listen to. An important book today. Ancient wisdom is indeed of need in, we face threats of climate change which our urban and industrial lifestyle will not counteract. Deeper nature knowledge and wisdom is required so that the human race can thrive and survive in line with nature.
