Inhaltsangabe: As a young woman in 1898, Theresa Huntington left her New England home and traveled to another world. For seven years she lived and worked in Harpoot (Kharpert) in the Ottoman Empire. She wrote home regularly.
Now Stina Katchadourian has discovered Theresa's old letters. And they are fascinating.
The letters give us insights into the daily lives of Ottoman Armenians. Theresa describes their holidays and celebrations, their social customs and traditions.
She writes about how people dressed and what they did in their free time. She describes in mouth-watering detail what they ate. She writes about their friendships and loves, their hopes and their fears.
In addition, Theresa gives us an insider's portrait of a missionary community and its relationship to Armenians and Turks during the reign of Sultan Abdlhamid II.
Well-written and fun to read, this volume is an excellent introduction to Armenian social history in the late Ottoman Empire.
Klappentext: Stina Katchadourian (MA Stanford '67) grew up in Finland as a member of that country's Swedish-speaking minority. She is an author, literary translator, and journalist.
