    Decades before the American Revolution, Benjamin Franklin lamented that English settlers were constantly fleeing over to the Indians - but Indians almost never did the same. Tribal society has been exerting an almost gravitational pull on Westerners for hundreds of years, and the reason lies deep in our evolutionary past as a communal species. The most recent example of that attraction is combat veterans who come home to find themselves missing the incredibly intimate bonds of platoon life.

    My only critique is that I wish it was longer! It's a powerful truth that I have been drawn to all my life & have found myself drawn more & more to the simplistic, humble, communal life he is celebrating in this book. Ancient & tribal ways are far more sophisticated & intelligent than we realize; I also found this book to very healing & helped me recognize some voids in my life have had more to do w/proximity & connection & to let go of relationships & people who actually isolate me more than they draw me in. Seriously such an amazing book.
