So far from myself.

by Jhaime-Irani (WorldCat user published 2008-10-15) Excellent Permalink

This was a great read for me, it gave me the opportunity to look deeper into my family's past and rediscover the lost persian history.  Anyone interested in peoples migrations and globalization in Latin American.
