"Twenty-three year old Charlie Brades has agreed to spend a month among the Yoruk--nomadic shepherds who live in the mountains of southern Turkey. This program follows the spirited Londoner as she adapts to life in a polygamous family and a remote, back-to-basics environment. Although Charlie's youth was far from carefree, she is wholly unprepared for the rough work, the communal sleeping arrangements, and especially the subservient female role that her new surroundings require. Her Western notions of independence are continually put to the test as she and her hosts exchange views on clothes, domestic duties, marriage, and other culturally loaded topics."--Container.
