New Book by Chos bstan rgyal on Tibetan Pastoral Life

Following the Herds: Rhythms of Tibetan Pastoral Life in A mdo by Chos bstan rgyal

This ground-breaking book provides unique insights into the knowledge and practices that helped pastoralists sustain the grasslands of Tibet for millennia. Following an introduction to the community, its territory, history, and other salient features, local pastoral production and the annual pastoral cycle are described. Remaining chapters deal with the naming, breeding, and management of livestock; wildlife; grassland plants; pasture management; weather prediction; rituals to ensure good fortune; and the treatment of livestock illnesses. Includes two maps, fifteen tables, sixty-six figures, a list of non-English terms with original orthography, and an index.
