The Caucasus Mountains straddle the isthmus between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea. The location of the Caucasus region has made it a crossroads for travelers, traders, and invaders from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East alike. Many of the languages spoken in the Caucasus are unique to the region, while others are related to Turkic and Indo-European languages.
This region’s myths and legends are not as well known to outsiders as the mythologies of places like ancient Greece or ancient Egypt. The Circassian and Armenian genocides took their toll, as did the Soviet occupation, the last of which purged much of the native culture. Nevertheless, much of the mythology and literature of the Caucasus still survives today.
In this book, you will get a brief but captivating introduction to some of the fine tales created by the resilient people who call this part of the world their home.
