By by Virlana Tkacz (Author), Sayan Zhambalov (Author), Wanda Phipps (Author), Alexander Khantaev (Pho

Siberian Shamanism: The Shanar Ritual of the Buryats by by Virlana Tkacz (Author), Sayan Zhambalov (Author), Wanda Phipps  (Author), Alexander Khantaev (Pho“. . . fascinating book. . . . With coauthors Zhambalov, a Buryat actor, and Phipps, an African American poet, (Tkacz) gives a vivid and detailed look into this ritual and,
more generally, into this rarely discussed culture. . . .This book provides enough information about the culture to place the ritual in context, but it is not meant to be a scholarly treatment of the Buryat culture. The 175 accompanying photographs by fashion photographer Alexander Khantaev are beautiful and convey a sense of color that is not typically associated with this region.” (Library Journal)
