The Soul of Kazakhstan is regarded as a primary source on the culture of Kazakhstan.

Documentary photographer Wayne Eastep and his researcher/editor wife Patti worked on the

book for four years. They spent one year

crisscrossing the diverse and spectacular

landscape of Kazakhstan to collect first-hand

information for the book. Traveling from the

Chinese border to Russia and the Siberian border

to Uzbekistan they met and worked with a range

of cultural experts: artists, shamans, writers,

weavers, archeologists, ethnographers, musicians,

and historians. They documented the full range

of the culture, making more than 25,000 photographs. Kazakhstan is the

home of the apple and tulip, the place where people first rode the horse and

women have been chieftesses for over two millennia. Rich design motifs and

vibrant colors define Kazakh style. While the book is sold out, it can be

found on the secondary market. Additional images and information can be

found at www.WayneEastep.com.
