The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
by Cherry Gilchrist
Continuing her research on Russian mythology and traditional culture, Gilchrist describes the magical traditions embedded in Russian fairy tales, folk art and native wisdom, making connections between shamans and leshy, domovoys and Baba Yaga. A superb reference on Russian culture and lore that, if nothing else, will help you understand why your Russian hosts insist you sit down for a minute before departing on a trip.
