Years ago, I was a teenager, my father gave me a book as present. It it written by a Dutch writer and it is called: "The book of Bod Pa". The story is in Mongolia at the time of Marco Polo. Bod Pa is an elusive character: a shaman without signs of dignity what was in his time common : were chains, mice skulls, tufts of grass, bird claws and feathers. But he is invariably accompanied by a raven and a wolf. He is a blind goblin disfigured devils with something, often a drunken 'potatoes gnome.
The shaman is summoned by the father of Perregrin, a fourteen-year-old shepherd boy whose broken leg just will not heal. Initially Perregrin wants nothing to do with Bid Pa, but the shaman gradually gaining confidence. He is Perregrins guru, though the boy never completely won. Perregrin by persistent bid Pa Pilgrim called strangers in their own country, viewfinder own soul.
Some words between Bod Pa and Perregrin:
"Can something exist only because we have invented?"
"That way everything can exist."
"If you only know."
--because it is Dutch and so far I know not translated in english, I have explained it a bit--
But anyway......ever since I have red this book my dream is:
I want to got to Mongolia!!!!!
