ARMENIA: A Rugged Land, An Enduring People
by Lucine Kasbarian
ARMENIA: A Rugged Land, an Enduring People offers a comprehensive introduction to the land, history and culture of the Armenian people in a condensed, easy-to-read format designed for both children and adults.
Within 11 chapters, ARMENIA explores the origins and history of the Armenians, describes the geographical characteristics of the country, notes the achievements of pioneering Armenians, documents the events and evidence surrounding the Armenian Genocide of 1915, and describes what life is like in the country today. The book also includes pages of Armenian phrases and folk tales, authentic Armenian recipes, and addresses of foreign embassies and consulates. A full-color map and over 45 color photographs and illustrations further familiarize readers with the customs and practices in this foreign land.
ARMENIA is also intended to familiarize young Americans of Armenian descent about the heritage of their ancestors, and even serve as a travel guide for anyone thinking about visiting Armenia today.
