Children of the Green Jungle is an eco-fable for elder children and their heirs. The Green life is a good life! The ever-children of the Green jungle live a carefree and joyful life on their tiny, remote tropical island. They laugh and play, they tell stories around the evening fire, and are blessed with the abundance of fish and fruits that the island provides. Life is good! Life is Green! But changes are ahead! As the skies darken and the sea grows dark green, strangers begin to arrive and the children are forced into accepting new ways, new thoughts and new lives. The spirit of the Green children is challenged to survive. Join the children on this journey and “Remember the Green!”  Throughout history, cultures have risen, been established, conquered, assimilated, and have evolved. This has occurred worldwide as transportation improves, technology advances, and as nations continue to expand and dominate.               Children of the Green Jungle explores what happens to native cultures that are subjected to progress in an ever-changing world.  The struggle remains in those cultures that survive to preserve a sense of self-identity.               This short story, written as an eco-fable for children, young adults, and future generations explores the struggles of a native island population through  five-hundred years of occupation by three conquering nations, as they strive to hold on to their original heritage. It is a story of a people dominated by others, who submitted to change that may not have been sought after, and of survival.               It is a story that could be applied to many other populations, some that have disappeared completely, and others that continue to struggle for their identity. It is a story of all time, and a story of our time.
