Master of the spirits
Summary Long ago, Earth was dominated by supernatural beings: spirits who lived in the forest and in the ocean. To live in harmony with them, Man had to learn to respect nature and animals. Today the Masters of the Spirits are the guardians of ancient beliefs uniting men and animals. By respecting these eternal legends, Man continues to live incredible adventures with animals, hoping to receive the spirit̀s protection. For its 13 extraordinary and true stories, the series entitled 'The Master of the Spirits' has sought out civilizations who still believe in magic, and whose people continue to share remarkable experiences with animals, hoping to win the favor of the spirits. From the mysterious fishermen of the Himalayan rivers to the last eagle tamers of the Kirgisthan mountains, this collection recounts the most beautiful legends featuring exceptional relationships between Man and animals
