In these forty-one tales, poems, stories, and in numerous proverbs, Margaret Read MacDonald uses ideas held by all peoples to show children how what we do affects our life on Earth. Organized by concept, these tales touch upon both human and ecological themes: caring for the land, the crops, the forests, and the wetlands; caring for other creatures; how all things are linked; how human greed leads to disaster; how no thing is without value; how pollution returns to the polluter; how one person can make a difference; how to husband the future by heeding the experience of the past; and how to unite our voices on the earth's behalf.

MacDonald includes two original stories and two contemporary poems with tales from over thirty countries or ethnic groups. Seven stories are from diverse native American peoples. There is also a short bibliography of tale collections with ecological themes; a list of good stories to tell; proverb sources; tale notes; and an ethnic/geographic index.
