About this product
- DescriptionMongolia is a land of constant surprises. Rewned for its classic rolling steppe land - from where, in times past, madic Mongol clans and confederations swept out to conquer much of the kwn world - it also boasts sw-capped peaks towering over wide, grassy valleys, meandering rivers and great lakes, as well as badlands, dramatic gorges and mighty sand dunes rising from flat desert floors. Within these ermous vistas much of the old Mongolia can still be found, with herdsmen, horses and heart-warming hospitality wherever you go. But in its growing cities a new Mongolia is emerging, shaking loose from its Sovietera shackles and making the most of a liberating free-market ecomy. This beautifully illustrated book provides a comprehensive and insightful guide to the diverse natural history and rich culture of 'The Land of the Eternal Blue Sky'. This title presents in-depth historical focus, from prehistory to post-Soviet freedom. It discusses Mongolia's incredible natural diversity. It includes special topic essays by experts on important aspects of Mongolian culture and history. It features wide range of literary excerpts, from Natsagdorj to Roy Chapman Andrews.

He moved to Australia where he was Newsweek Magazine's correspondent and later a successful restauranteur. An extended trip to Mongolia opened his heart and mind to this fascinating country, and formed the inspiration for this book. He is based in Queensland, Australia.
