A Journey in Southern Siberia By Jeremiah Curtin

A Journey in Southern Siberia

Jeremiah Curtin


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 311 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1909.

Description

Fully Illustrated. The first third of this book is a travelogue which describes Curtin's Siberian journey; this is a fascinating glimpse at Tsarist Siberia just before the Revolution. The last two-thirds of the book is an extraordinary record of the mythology of the Buryats. There are many elements found elsewhere through Asia and Europe such as epic horses (and horse sacrifices), battles with giants, a World-mountain and 'the water of life', (see The Epic of Gilgamesh). There are also unique elements such as heroes with oracular books embedded in their bodies.
