The Wider Image: Turkey's last nomads roam Anatolia
When summer comes to southern Turkey, the goats become restless and the Gobut family knows it is time to pack their tents and embark on the long annual trek north with their herd of 1,000 animals. The family is part of the nomadic Yoruk tribe which for more than a millennium has crisscrossed Anatolia, a region that includes much of Turkey. Half a century ago, 1,000 families roamed the Anatolian steppe but now there are just 86. That drop mirrors a decline in the number of nomadic tribes worldwide over the past century due to industrialization and agricultural development. The Gobuts are a family of eight spread over three generations. They spend six months a year on the road and live in tents made of goat fur. REUTERS/Osman Orsal SEARCH "ORSAL NOMADS" FOR THIS STORY.
