They were originally part of the fourth version, called The Book of Nahash (nahash being the Hebrew word for serpent ). While the book as a whole didn’t accomplish what I wanted it to accomplish (that was a thing that didn’t happen until Ishmael), these tales have a life of their own that seems to me worth preserving. The sign of abundance.

by Michael McCurdy and Daniel Quinn.

Ever since the publication of Ishmael in 1992, readers have yearned for a glimpse into a dimension of spiritual revelation the author only hinted at in that and later books. Now at long last they have it in seven profound but delightfully simple tales that illuminate the world in which humans became humans. This is a world seen through animist eyes: as friendly to human life as it was to the life of gazelles, lions, lizards, mosquitos, jellyfish, and seals — not a world in which humans lived like trespassers who must conquer and subdue an alien territory. It's a world in which humans have a place in the community of life — not as rulers but as equals — with the paths of all held together in the hand of god.This is not an ancient world or a lost world. It exists as surely today as it ever did — for those who have eyes to see it. Tales of Adam, delightfully illustrated by Michael McCurdy, is a book that will come to be shelved alongside The Prophet, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, and The Alchemist.

i am a longtime fan of daniel quinn, but this book was a waste of money. at least it only took about 15 minutes to read the entire book.
have you ever had a band you like release a collection of b-sides or unknown songs? almost like they needed money and didn't have any new material?? and they knew that their early songs were so popular that their fans would buy anything they put out??? well, here you have daniel quinn's unreleased pile of junk rolled into a new album with nice cover art. just like your favorite band has songs that didn't make the final album version, these stories probably should have remained on the cutting room floor. at least it's short...

Anything Quinn writes is genius helping us understand our past in non-traditional ways. Here he takes the Biblical Adam & Able with a positive twist to convey fundamental life lessons that we still need to learn or are in need of being reminded.

Top quality, fast delivery, great price. It is amazing how convenient it is to buy such worthwhile books (from Amazon), and, unlike a library book, you can keep these purchases for future reference and make notes right in your books. And if you know a friend that has similar ideals/feelings, you can loan or give your copy away to them.

Quinn has always been strange when it comes to his writing. To get his best though, read "The Story Of B".

Here is a review from my professor daughter:I have just finished Tales of Adam and, as with all of DQs books, have come away with a new sense of direction. As a business instructor at a local college, I find that getting others to understand the realities we face is often easier using parables and then letting the students come to their own conclusions. This book is a gem for that - it is short, simple, beautiful stories that do not allow the reader to miss the point. I have already used "The Business of a Rabbit" in my Business Ethics class and several students have asked where they can get the book. The message travels on, one person at a time.

Rather short, but a fun read. I'd try to find this for under $5 due to the small amount of content.

"Tales of Adam" by Daniel Quinn, the author of "Ishmael." I think it is his best book to date. It is an easy and short read, but packs a punch that reveals to you how to live life unless you are attached to the modern way of dealing with things. If you have read his other books you may be confused about how to put into practice what he seems to be saying, but this book will tell you that simply. It teaches you about real life and, in a sense, suggests how to live it with the rewards that one finds when she/he is living life as it was meant to live.
