OUT OF TURKEY: The Life Story of Donik "Haji Bey" Yessaian

Regular price $ 35.00 $ 0.00

By Harry Yessaian, Introduction, Afterword, and Bibliography by Dennis R. Papazian

Out of Turkey is the story of the Yessaian family from Efkereh, Turkey, and other Armenians, Greeks, and Turks who lived together in relative peace until ambitious, misguided and unscrupulous leaders with their grand illusions and abstract schemes tore apart a traditional society that was slowly groping towards modernization ... Yessaian relates what he was told by various members of his family over a period of time, masterfully weaving the various threads into one story. The characters of this story are authentic.
