The Tarim Mummies

The Tarim Mummies - J.P. Mallory, Victor H. Mair This lovely, illustrated book provides an extensive investigation of the Tarim mummies - who they were, their neighbours, the mummies, their languages, their life and culture etc. The book is scholarly, but well written and not boring at all. The book has a nice balance of enough detail but not too much irrelevant waffling. I especially liked the authors dry sense of humour.
