The Eye of Zeitoon

By Talbot Mundy

First Published 1920

“The story deals with the adventures of a party of British and Americans in Armenia just prior to the war, and besides containing an interesting description of the habits of the region, there is a delightful love story interwoven with it.” – The Geelong Advertiser

“The story—an exciting pre-war one—is concerned with Turkish misrule in Armenia; and with the adventures of four young men—three of them being English, the fourth Armenian—among the Armenian mountains. Events lead them to the mountain fortress of Zeitoon, the headquarters of the Armenian patriot, Kagig, who is known to his followers as ‘The Eye of Zeitoon.’ Here they take a prominent part in a sort of guerrilla war of independence, in addition to rescuing a very capable American young woman who has fallen into the hands of a tribe of Armenian gipsies. The book is full of thrilling incidents, Turkish atrocities, battle, murder and sudden death, and Armenian villagers ravaged and laid waste by flames… The story is a thrilling one and remarkably well-told. There is not a dull moment in the book, which can be confidently recommended to the reader who prefers fiction of the actively adventurous kind. It makes one feel grateful that Turkish domination in Armenia, and elsewhere in now definitely, and it may be hoped forever, a thing of the past.” – Western Mail

“A particularly thrilling adventure story which tells of a little nation of people living in an impregnable mountain fortress of Zeitoon. In a series of vivid pen-pictures one follows the tragic story of the Armenian people, whose land the Turk has made red with Christian blood, together with the exploits of three modern crusaders, daring, laughing, reckless, Anglo-Saxon lads, and the romances of Maga, a wild gipsy daughter of the dawn, who fights, hates and loves with the full force of her passionate nature.” – Tweed Daily
