What do herders and other pastoral nomads in Mongolia do?
From here, you can either browse Chapter 2, Society and Its Environment or put “herders” in the “search Mongolia” box. Either way, you’ll find several articles relating to nomadic herders in Mongolia. Along the way you’ll learn this bit about marriage among Mongolian herders (as recent as late 1980s):
Among herders, a traditional place to seek a spouse was from the adjacent herding camp that exchanged daytime custody of lambs (to prevent the ewes from nursing the lambs in the pasture). In-laws frequently cooperated in herding or joined the same herding camp.
If you’d like more detail than is offered in the pages of the Country Study, head over to this study’s bibliography and review the entries for chapter 2, Society and Its Environment. In many cases searching the title and author of the article against WorldCat or your favorite search engine should help you locate a copy of the book or article.
If you search in WorldCat, pay attention to the subject headings that come up in the items you find. These can be used to find more recent materials on Mongolia that have similar depth.
