Review by Tamar Sosi Beylerian
Armenia: A Rugged Land, an Enduring People by Lucine Kasbarian is about the country Armenia, and its treasured and tragic history. I found this book very informative and interesting. It includes the country’s geography, culture, holidays, food, folk tales, and everything else that a reader could want to know about Armenia or the Armenian people. It’s a great research book. I recommend this book for school reports and projects or if you’re just looking for a good book to read to get an idea of what Armenia is all about.
My favorite part of the book is the chapter about Armenian folk tales, because they are so funny and interesting. Some of the stories are crazy, and others are unbelievable. They are a blast to read!
