An Imperious Impusle: Coyote Tales – a new release from Stuart France and Sue Vincent

“Couldn’t you make me into a Bull?” asked Coyote. 

In a time before Man walked the Earth, the Great Spirit breathed life into the land. Coyote was the First. Playful, subversive, curious and sometimes comical, he and his fellow creatures shaped the world for those who were to follow.

Coyote is a Native American Trickster and hero of many adventures. Tales of Coyote were passed down and shared with the young to illustrate the dangers of being human. Wilful, headstrong and always in trouble, Coyote journeyed through the spirit worlds, stealing fire and outwitting Death.

When the Earth was loved as a living being, the rocks sang and the trees danced. Animals uttered Nature’s wisdom and the sun rose and set upon a wondrous world. The echoes of this magical landscape can still be found in the myths and legends of many cultures. They represent the weaving of the human spirit and the silent lore of creation.

An Imperious Impulse is the first book of the Lore Weavers, a collection of ancient tales retold in graphic form. All traditional cultures evolved stories through which the natural and supernatural worlds could be explained and approached. Beyond their entertainment and humour is a deeper layer of mystery and symbolism through which the wisdom of the people could be transmitted. Telling of a time beyond human experience or memory, these tales meld a knowledge of the natural world with the spiritual and moral code of their creators.

‘Be careful, Coyote, never perform this trick
more than four times in any one day.’ 

The essence of the human quest for an understanding of our role within creation has changed little over the millennia. From the Dreaming of the Australian peoples, to the Great Mystery of the Native Americans and the ancient Celtic myths, there is a common thread that unites humankind across time and distance.

It is in the rich tapestry of folk tales that we glimpse its multi-hued beauty. Long may they continue to be enjoyed.

The first book in the Lore Weavers series by Stuart France and Sue Vincent.

Available in paperback via Amazon UK, Amazon.com and worldwide.

    Congratulations Sue and Stuart. Will order it when I’m back from holiday. Right now I’m in La Gomera in glorious sunshine which feels wonderful! I intended not looking at emails and notifications but it’s proving hard to ignore them completely, which is good as I saw your fantastic news.
    You may not hear from me for a while, though, as the pull of the sun is strong. My bones love it.

  14. One of the few things that gives me hope for the earth is that coyotes live in my woods. They have even been seen in the suburbs near Boston. They have adapted surprisingly well to changes in their world. When I see them strolling along my driveway, I am encouraged.

    We still have coyotes.
