In this chapter, the author describes the fur trade in Russia. He first narrates his trip to Nelemnoye, a village where the Yukaghirs lived and where virtually everyone makes a living from hunting sable, together with his friend Uffe Refslund Christensen, who is also his partner in the Danish-Yukaghir Fur Project that they were pursuing. He then discusses his meeting with Slava Shadrin, who replaced Kolya Shalugin as director of the Teki Odulok obshchina (commune), to talk about the fur project. He also provides a background on the history of Russian fur trading and how it fared during and after Communism, along with the Sakha and Yukaghir sable hunters in Siberia.
