Animal Guides in Myth, Literature, and Life
"Feathered Grace" explores the idea, found not only in fairy tales, but in myths and literary traditions around the world, that winged animals play an essential role in inspiring and guiding human beings to excel and embrace their own better natures, in addition to warning what will happen if they indulge in their lesser natures as well.
"Feathered Grace" studies stories from Greek, Roman, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, Islamic, Celtic, and Native American traditions, showing how winged animals help in achieving wholeness and harmonic balance of the individual and community. The book concludes with consideration of the birds that share our lives today in homes, backyards, and the wilderness, exploring their essential role in understanding the mutual reciprocity of our collective existence.
