  1. You might also like the book Mother Tongues, by Helena Drysdale.

  2. I highly recommend “The Shaman’s Coat: A Native History of Siberia” by Anna Reid. The works of the explorer V.K. Arseniev have been published in English as well.

  3. Adrian and Tlilxochitl, thank you both for your recommendations. They on my reading list now!
