Description
 
Anna Reid (au). Tells the story of some of the world’s least-known & most ancient peoples: the indigenous tribes of Siberia. Russia’s equivalent to the native Amer. or Australian Aborigines, they number more than one million, divided into 2 dozen different & ancient nationalities -- among them Buryat, Tuvans, Sakha, & Chukchi -- spread across a fierce & endless landscape. They have begun to demand land rights & political autonomy since the fall of Communism. This book travels through 400 years of history, from the Cossacks’ campaigns against the last of the Tatar khans to those of native rights activists against oil development today. Here is a moving portrait of some of the most threatened & extraordinary peoples, & a unique travel chronicle. Illustrations.
