While in Yakutia, a local legend mesmerized me: afiery Viking warrior sailed up the Lena river to the land of permafrost and melted the heart of an indigenous woman. Their child was the first Yakut; her voice echoes through the ages in Foremother Asia, leaving no one untouched. Sölvi Fannar Viðarsson, actor, poet, author of A Poet Trapped in a Caveman's Body and Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? Iceland "Whether she writes about love, about friendship, about the fate of her people, or of the entirety of Russia, her words (as if in her hands), hold life. She saves it from a lack of spirituality, hatred, disintegration and chaos, as well as self-destruction ... Happy and rich is the ethnic group that has such people." Sergei Glovyuk, member of the Union of Writers of Russia, Honorable Member of the Union of Writers of Macedonia, Serbia, and Montenegro Poems by Natalia Kharlampieva are like a fine rain falling onto the ground, whereon it becomes water giving life to germinating seeds of kindness, forgiveness, understanding and love ..... "in any country, in any century ..." Lenifer Mambetova, Poet and winner of the best female work OEBF-2014 Republic of Crimea
