For decades preceding 1990, Mongolia's economy was supported by the Soviet Union. For the past several years the country has been undergoing extreme change in economic structure as well as social organization. The 30 women in this book discuss the changes in specific, pesonal terms but, as a counterpoint, confirm a tenacious sense of tradition. Weather conditions are extreme in Mongolia: winter temperatures hover between 30 to 40 degrees below zero. The high plateau that Mongolia sits on has preserved a uniquely Mongolian lifestyle. The women of Mongolia celebrate that lifestyle in this book, as they face an uncertain future with strength and optimism.
