The day begins like any other for the Siberian town of Oksino. The sun has risen early, and children don themselves in overcoats to protect against the cold as they make their way to be picked up for school by rusted busses long in need of repair. The ride to school goes slow and monotonous, and the children press their noses against the frosted glass windows of the bus to watch the landscape passing by: twisting streams, stretching grasslands, and Asian mountains rising in the distance. The Trans-Siberian railroad can be seen through broken mists as the sun rises higher above the snowcapped Altai Mountains. The busses arrive at the school late, and the children flood into their classrooms. The cafeteria and the boarding house are in different buildings along opposite ends of the village, and the school sports no gymnasium. The walls are colored with chalk and falling apart; many of the desks are broken, and the electricity in the room often shorts-out. They file into their classrooms and sit down, talking hurriedly amongst themselves in the Russian tongue. Many of the children are direct descendents of the Pazyryk, an ancient people who lived in the land thousands of years ago, of whom mummies have been found frozen in permafrost. Many Bronze Age tombs have been dug up, and their findings hint that the Pazyryk culture may have been loosely connected with the ancient Scythian culture to the west. Most of the children’s parents make income working in the oil fields or doing agricultural work; fewer belong to ranching families, being threatened by the Russian government for hunting such species as Argali Mountain Sheep, the steppe eagle, and the Black Stork.
