The Last of the Shor Shamans, Paperback Book


This book, "The Last of the Shor Shamans", may be the only way the shamanic peoples of the Shor Mountain region of Siberia are remembered - now in their 80's their legacy is expected to die with them.

Published here in the English language for the first time is a depiction of Shor shamanic worldview, ceremony and ritual objects.

Included are biographical sketches of seven of the remaining comtemporary, yet elder, Shor shamans; photos of Shor Territory in Siberia and several of the shamans depicted; and, text of shamanic verses never before recorded.

This unified presentation of previously disparate studies of Siberian Shor shamanism will intrigue academicians and folklorists alike - as well, it will inspire serious shamanic practitioners and a wider readership interested in traditional shamanic cultures.
