In part of the book we read, “Water brings prosperity. Wherever water goes, that place flourishes and if it does not go, debris and deserts are left. Our country is located on the dry strip and in the dry hemisphere. That is why Iranians have always dreaded drought. The collection called “Our Ancestors” deals with the culture and civilization of Iranian people after Islam. It views Iran’s fate with a different outlook; it tries to look for the history through the heart of people’s lives and their culture.

So far, six books have been published from this series: “Pen and Crown” is the story of Iranian ministers written by Ebrahim Hassanbeigi, “Bells and Ways” is the story of trading in Iran written by Hossein Bekaie.
