This is the tale of one man s extraordinary journey across a continent and through the depths of human experience. Ferdinant Ossendowski, a cultured Russian doctor and writer, found himself on the run from the Bolsheviks during the Revolution of the 1920s. Setting his sights on reaching the safety of British India, he traveled across Asia, through a nightmarish landscape of battles, bandits and disease, forced to rely on his most basic survival instincts. This account of his trials is painstakingly observant and unflinchingly honest, a testament to the endurance of the human spirit. Beasts, Men and Gods will stun the reader with its astonishing true adventures.
