Chapter One: Forest

Families gathered together in sheltered spaces, a clearing in the trees.

They formed bands, small groups that clung to one another for safety.

They established camps close to the springs that fed the clear streams providing them with the clean water they needed for life, and nourishment.

They built their fires, burning bright, smoking fish, birds, and rabbits. The fed off of any other type of meat that could be taken down with the shafts of their javelins and atlatls, their spears and stones and arrows.

They had returned to the primordial life.

The built small shelters in and around the trees.

They only moved when they had depleted the resources in the area that surrounded them.

Everything was temporary.

When they had burned all of the fuel, eaten all of the nuts and berries, the wild onions and mushrooms, and cleared the region of the living beings they feasted on, then they would move.

Through their story telling the developed the ethos that the migratory life was the path that nature had intended. It was the life of the natural man, it was peaceful and well ordered, and provided the tribal-bands with everything they needed from season to season.

Chapter Two: Plains

Families and tribes left the security of the forests, the safe canopy of trees, looking across the plain, over the tall grasses, exposing themselves beneath the clear sky.

The sky deep and blue, angry and gray, it was wide open and oppressing.

There were dangers lurking everywhere, great beasts threatening, other tribes.

Survival required constant vigilance.

Chapter Three: Hills

The migrating tribes left the shelter of caves by the bubbling springs, in the valleys and glens.

They crossed the open plain.

They climbed to the tops of hills, drawn closer to the stars from which they came.

They piled stones atop one another, and built their homes with a wide view of their surroundings.

Chapter Four: Mountains

We gathered the herds and flocks to us.

We walked with them, led them to water, protected them.

They gave us milk and meat, hides and wool.

We were symbiotic.

We led the herds to the mountain, and up the lofty peaks, looking for new pastures, passes.

We found ourselves there, we found the sacred.

Chapter Five: Rivers

The tribes were always moving, always looking for new places.

They followed the rivers to their source, followed them to the clean springs from which the water flowed, water flowing into stream, and into rivers, feeding lakes, into the seas and oceans.

They founded their settlements there, at the head waters, the place of beginning.

Chapter Six: Coast

The foot paths in the forests and those crossing the open prairie, they were narrow, and shifting.

The tribes traversed the shorelines in long lines, single file.

The people came to the great lakes and seas, their broad coasts became the first roads.

They trekked across them as if they were long and winding highways.

Chapter Seven: Ocean

On thin strips of wood, in fragile canoes, they hurled their bodies onto the rivers and lakes, and into the sea, just as their ancient forebears had done when they crossed the stars, looking for new ways of life, and searching for mysteries.

Many were swept away and perished, in the accidental crossing of storms.
