This genre-bending paintings takes the unconventional down paths rarely walked for it files a demise tradition via a few this cultural crew, presents difficult footnotes certain to curiosity the anthropologically-minded reader, has parts which are biography and background, and extra. Its richly unique description of people and spiritual practices, family members interactions and breadth within the quantity and kinds of scenes and vignettes supply priceless files of what was once, or may need been.

The tale is decided in China's greatest province – Qinghai – most sensible identified for Koknor, the nice inland lake and, extra lately, the devastating earthquake in Yushu in 2010. inside of this tremendous land is positioned Huzhu Mongghul (Tu) independent County, the place the characters during this novel stay. famous by means of 19th century Western explorers, the Tu are one among China's fifty-six legit nationalities. talking a language with shut hyperlinks to Mongolian, the Mongghul are a lot prompted by way of Tibetan faith, whereas holding, as this novel info, many complicated people spiritual ideals and practices.

The novel starts a yr earlier than the arrival of the 20 th century and ends a century later, spanning a time while Mongghul tradition used to be lively to a time while a lot have been lost.

Women determine prominently during this paintings. the most personality, Xjirimu, refuses to self-discipline considered one of her sons, who so brutally abuses his spouse that she dies whereas fleeing the house.
