Non - Fiction
BREAD AND ASHES
Tony Anderson set out in the summer of 1998 to walk through georgia. He wanted particularly to visit the georgian mountain tribes - Tush, Khevsurs, Ratchueliansand Svans - to discover if they shared a common mountain culture, and to test the old ide of the caucasus as an imperenetrable barrirer from sea to sea. From Azerbaijan to Svaneti, Anderson found communities where the old custom and beliefs still triumphantly survive, despite years of Communist oppression and the terrible uncertainties since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
