First Sentence
When a dissident priest called avvakum arrived in the lands of the nomadic, reinder-herding Evenki in the early 1650s, having been exiled to central Siberia by the patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, no outsider had ever heard of a saman, let alone written the word down or explored the cosmological understandings that underpinned its meaning. Read the first page

Well written introduction to the subject. Would prefer to have had something more in depth - it just whetted my curiosity for the subject.
