Lords of the Mountains: Southern Persia and The Kashkai Tribe

Ullens de Schooten, Marie Therese, 1956
Secondary title - Southern Persia and the Kashkai Tribe

Quite a few photos, some in colour, of the tribe (and archaeological sights).

It's decades since I read it, but I seem to recall it was good.

Hi, to all

Just started reading this book, it gives a nice and small insight sometimes in the peculiarities of the weaving, by the women about, patterns, skewed rugs, and inter tribal relations.

Best, Egbert
