The Nogai women are very timid, for the jealousy of their husbands is extreme.
A great number of Nogai Tatars have become completely blended with them.
Formerly there was a fourth pastoral tribe in this region—the Nogai Tartars.
The Nogai constructs his own cottage with bricks dried in the sun, and whitewashes it regularly once a year within and without.
There were bands, also, of the nomadic tribes, the short broad-faced Calmuck and the Nogai Tartars.
When the Nogai has two or more wives he constructs his house in such a manner that each of them may have her separate room.
