Description

With a history spanning millennia—from the earliest glimmers of civilization to the modern country of today—Turkey offers travelers an enormous range of experiences. Within its lands, great empires rose and fell. Their ruins litter the landscape with an unparalleled archaeological heritage. The Anatolian peninsula is the cradle of the world’s three, great monotheist religions. Turkey is also a land of diverse natural contrasts. Fertile valleys are nestled beneath the gaze of spectacular, snow-capped mountain ranges. An extensive, sun-drenched coastline holds hidden azure coves and pristine beaches, attracting year-round tourists from all over the world. But it is Turkey’s people that will win your heart. Turks are an exceedingly polite, warm-hearted, family-oriented people. Just as their country spans both Europe and Asia, they too bridge the divide between modern and traditional, looking westward from their Central Asian roots. Land of the Turks captures the essence of the people, the land, and their history as viewed through the eyes and heart of a professional American photographer and writer. Through its pages, you will experience not only the beauty and complexity of this ancient land, but modern Turkey as well. You will come to better understand its rich culture and the warm hospitality of its people.
