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 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.

They spend six months a year on the road and live in tents made of goat fur.
