    The Caucasus, that mountainous region that divides Europe from Asia, is home to a range of diverse peoples - Georgians, Abkhazis, Chechens, Ingush and many others - and boasts a rich and dynamic oral literature. This volume makes 100 myths, legends and proverbs available in English for the first time. Originating in 14 ethnic groups, they speak of hunting, cattle rustling, magic, clan warfare, revenge, and the eternal struggle against oppression.
