An industrial city situated at the confluence of the Barnaulka and Ob Rivers in the West Siberian Plain, Barnaul is the administrative center of Altai Krai, Russia. It was founded in the 18th century by the wealthy Demidov family, who intended to use the abundance of silver in the area to increase the production of copper and silver goods. It is the closest major city to the Altai Mountains and near the border with Kazakhstan.
The Altai Mountains are situated in Central Asia between Russia, China, Kazakhstan, and Mongolia. They are best known for their unique scenic views from mountain landscapes to the Gobi Desert. The Altai region is home to a spare but diverse population consisting of native Altai people, Mongols, Russians, and Kazakhs. The area supports a rural economy of husbandry, forestry, and mining.

A mysterious and wholly undisturbed land situated in what is now the heart of Russia, Siberia has been steeped in myth and intrigue from the West, yet this vast frozen tundra with endless forests has been a sanctuary to the wildlife, fauna and local communities that call it home. Siberia is a cradle of civilisation, the origin of several ancient Turkic empires, and home to many indigenous cultures who would later travel to the Americas and beyond. Tracing the history of this little-known region, Haywood provides a glimpse into the historic landmarks and natural phenomenon of the region as well as the culture of its largest cities, Irkutsk, Tobolsk, Barnaul and Novosibirsk.
A journey into spiritual development, Spiritual Wisdom from the Altai Mountains draws on ancient glyphs, legends and prophesies, as well as both oral traditions and written Shamanic traditions from local Altai culture. Shodoev provides a welcome introduction to Altai cosmology with the aim to seek harmony in the soul and spirit between man and the natural world.
