Homeland of the Lezgin People

The Lezgin people are located in the Caucasus Mountains between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.  Most people live in high isolated areas where there is many canyons and gorges.  Summers are very hot and dry living in these mountains, where the threat of a drought is always possible.  However, the winter is the polar opposite.  Winters are brutally cold and windy.  In these  areas the Lezgin people are engaged in the cultivation of animals (mostly sheep and goats).  At lower elevation, more towards the sea, crops are grown.  These crops consist mainly of wheat, barley, cucumbers, potatoes, tomatoes, and cabbage.
