    Story
    (142)

    Wilder's stories consistently explored the connections between the commonplace and cosmic dimensions of human experience, always returning to fundamental questions about the meaning of life. This Pulitzer Prize-winning tale concerns the lives of five people who fall to their deaths from a Peruvian rope bridge in 1714. A humble Franciscan, Brother Juniper, witnesses the accident and determines to learn about the lives of the victims in order to find out whether this accident happened by chance or by plan.

    Tobin says: "Compact novel about fate, destiny"
    "True American Literature"

    This audiobook addresses the current societal influences of the "Bigs" and relates the importance of the "Littles" in our communities in an incredibly interesting, conversational style. Packed with credibility and information and proven alternatives to our nation's problems, It Takes a Family is a must-listen for understanding and implementing the crucial elements of a successful society.
