Digest to Altan Ovoo - Remy M.Lang

In his book Altan Ovoo, G. Mend-Oyoo takes us on a trip through his
birth land: the steppes, the hills and the sands of Dariganga in
eastern Mongolia. His writings are a magical, dreamlike journey
through folklore, history, wisdom and Mongolian Buddhism. It is
impossible to read this book as an account of his life and the world
he grew up in; and thankfully so. The Mongolian nomadic life is a
mixture of harsh reality, unbending truth, fluid ideas, boundless
time, vast distances, fast horses, compassionate religion, frightful
spirits and superstitious lore. Mend-Oyoo is masterful in capturing
this essence of the Mongolian nomad.
