7. The Song of the Sheep

  • Li Dechun (author)
  • Gerald Roche (author)
The Sheep Song is a cultural omnibus depicting various aspects of life on the northeast Tibetan Plateau, and in the same way as the Crop-Planting Song, it spends considerable time mapping space at various levels: the cosmos and its bodies, the earth and its social and political organization, as well as, individual landscapes and their inhabitants.
