Part historian, part adventurer, Tim Cope has crafted an extraordinary book; in it, the author describes his epic journey from Mongolia to Hungary on horseback, retracing the steps of Genghis khan’s Mongols.
Along the way, Cope provides a brilliant cross-section of the history behind these wild, boundless places and their inhabitants: people whose nomadic way of life – thousands of years old – was nearly destroyed forever by the Soviets.
With accessible and vivid prose backed up by beautiful photography, On the Trail of Genghis Khan is a personal, relevant and spellbinding book.
