About the book

High up in the Caucasian Mountains, in a valley between the Rubas and Chirakhchai rivers of Daghestan, live the Tabasarans. In all of recorded time merchants from many lands journeyed to the city of Oerbent to buy the famed Tabasaran carpets. Today, too, these beautiful, hand-made carpets are known far and wide.

This small land is a land of Alpine meadows, orchards and nut groves. Ancient inscriptions on stones, the oldest to be found in all of Daghestan, tell us of the people’s valiant struggle against countless foreign invaders. The Tabasarans have preserve if their ancient heritage and have carried their language, customs, legends, folk tales and songs down to the present day.
