Read full description of the books:
An incredibly beautiful collection. Not only does it contain stories from indigenous peoples that you rarely ever hear about in school or mainstream media, but it also selects the most enchanting tales from all of them. The book comes with a long and well-written introduction to Siberia, its peoples, their history, languages, and stories. The tales themselves are exciting, colorful, and full of amazing visuals and unexpected plot twists. I read this book deliberately slowly, with only a couple of stories a day, to savor them. It made me want to go and seek out more tales from some of the groups whose stories I enjoyed. The Saami tales that frame the collection (the two opening and the one closing story) are some of the most beautiful I have ever encountered.
Must-read for storytellers.
