    About this book


The blue sky and green fields sung of by the herdsmen, and the historical legends recounted in the melodies played on the horse-head fiddles, convey to us the horseback peoples' fervent love for this vast, magnificent land. Such is the power of the lasting grassland culture The grasslands not only brought the horseback peoples into being, but shaped their character too. Grassland culture survived and developed through the interdependence of the horseback peoples and the grasslands. A spirit, a soul of grassland ecology, pulses permanently through the main arteries of this interdependent relationship.
