Earth Mother – Chaos – ‘Breaking the Back of Winter’ … by Jean Auel … referral by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; originally written on 20 March 2014

Hello, Dear Ones,

I found a great myth about how the Earth Mother, long ago, wrested a life force from Chaos, From this she created warmth and life. But then in Winter, she fights to keep her children alive. And then, at the first sign of Spring, they say that she has ‘broken the back’ of Winter.

Here is a link to the text of the myth, which is stated very eloquently in only about one page of text:

Link: “The Earth’s Children Series,” by Jean Auel, the passage on the myth of the Earth Mother, Chaos, and Winter: https://books.google.com/books?id=c0tZiRdkvt4C&pg=PT1912&lpg=PT1912&dq=%22break+the+back+of+winter%22&source=bl&ots=V7lgaGovAb&sig=TwcTF6Cl0tSRfM8NWJXXkSvLQzQ&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiVv4KvmYrZAhVB74MKHfKkCbMQ6AEIRDAG#v=onepage&q=%22break%20the%20back%20of%20winter%22&f=false

The text of this Myth of Creation begins “I was wondering …,” at the top of the linked-to page, and continues on to the first incomplete paragraph on the next page, ending “… in the air.”

Here is a paperback text reference to this passage, which is in Book 3 of the series:

“The Mammoth Hunters: Earth’s Children, Book 3” by Jean M. Auel, chapter 22, page 383, http://www.amazon.com/The-Mammoth-Hunters-Earths-Children/dp/0553280945 ..

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
