A most interesting history of a bunch of independent tribes in the Caucasus mountains in the distant past.  Reminds me of the disparate tribal cultures in Afghanistan......and perhaps in Africa.  Good read for those of us who find some interest in that sort of thing..


It began with mention of the multiplicity of languages in the Caucasus, but mostly it's about the Circassians. Still, an interesting look into a region I know very little about. Thanks, Icarus:)
