The Inuit, who gave their babies away to those with none, taught me unconditional love. The Native Americans held a reverence for the natural world, Grandfather Sky and Mother Earth. The Maoris knew the joy of singing. The Australian Aborigines believed that the dream world was more real than the ordinary world.... The Samoans believed that whoever appeared on their doorstep became family". -- from the Preface Peaceful, wise, filled with life and love in a world fraught with strife and despair -- such are the faces you will meet in these two volumes. With his eloquent pairings of image and word, each telling its own rich story, Ethan Hubbard brilliantly captures the connectedness of people from the farthest reaches of the world. Uplifting, refreshing, enlightening, these books reveal gentleness and strength, laughter and hope -- the true face of humanity.
