Into the land of stories . . . Moody Mohini belongs to a legendary family of storytellers. Telling tall tales is supposed to be in her genes. Except, she doesn't think so-even though her family (as well as just about everyone in Mithika) expects her to be the torchbearer of this rather marvellous tradition. So, cracking under the pressure of a plot line one day, she runs far away from home, only to be held hostage by a spunky spirit, who traps her in a strange spell and whisks her off on a whirlwind tour of India and its many storytelling traditions. How else can Mohini break the charm (you guessed it!) but by telling a story herself! Join Mohini as she receives a unique education about the untold ways in which the people of the country weave tales, using everything from stick figures and spectacular sculptures to shadow puppets and flamboyant dance dramas, while discovering the profound powers of that special skill-storytelling.

The ancient heartland of shamanism is no longer forbidden territory - to travelers or to the spirits. But the spirits never left the vastnesses of Siberia and Central Asia, as these writings reveal. Russian and native experts, and an American cultural anthropologist who has done fieldwork in the region, introduce us to shamans as the poets, therapists, healers, and even leaders of their communities. Among the special features of this collection are remarkable transcriptions of shamanic exhortations and a pathbreaking study of shamanic tales and rituals.
