James Riordan (ed) (tr). Siberia. The coldest inhabited place on earth, stretching 1/3 of the way around the world. From this strange & beautiful land comes an oral tradition that has altered little in 2,000 years. Not limited by a belief in a single god or deity, every object in these tales is given its own spirit, will or existence. A mound of snow can change into a girl hiding from the moon. A young boy can change into a whale, his spear into a fin. Riordan lived in NE Siberia among the Yakuts, Evenks, Chukchi, Koryaks & other tribes, listening to the stories told by these people. He recorded these tales, worked in the archives of the Siberian Folklore Inst. at Yakutsk, & also used material gathered by his brother-in-law who lives among the Mansi & Khanty in Western Siberia.
