Curzon reflects on the harsh uplands of Armenia. He tells us about the virtues of tezek, the pitfalls of winter travel, trout fishing at Tortoum, as well as relations between Armenians, Kurds and Turks. Some of his notions about the history of the region give us insights onto European perceptions at that time. An exellent introduction to the geography, ethnography and politics of this region.
