But what is the main topic of The Ways of Being? Maybe it is about gods and rituals – Valhalla and Karma? Or maybe it really about evolution – dinosaurs, all those exciting and intriguing ancients. Many referring to creatures – large and small, good and scary, living in the air, the sea and on land from the tropics to the arctic.

Plants, our flora also add to the mix – from rosehips to fairy slippers. Rivers, streams and mountains are not forgotten. Mr. Howard having read in scientific literature, in many disciplines, including the works of Shakespeare.

It is a hopeful and powerful world view which is particularly welcome in this time of covid despair.” - Ms. Frances Dahlberg Ph.D. Editor of the Anthology, ‘WOMEN THE GATHERER’ 1981.
