Mongolia, Nomad Empire of Eternal Blue Sky

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.' Mongolia is a land of constant surprises. Renowned for its classic rolling steppe land - from where, in times past, nomadic Mongol clans and confederations swept out to conquer much of the known world - it also boasts snow-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 enormous 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 Soviet-era shackles and making the most of a liberating free-market economy. Remarks + In-depth historical focus, from prehistory to post-Soviet freedom + In search of Genghis Khan + Mongolia's incredible natural diversity + Insightful analysis of Mongolia's different ethnic groups, cultures and traditions + Essays on adventure travel and mountaineering + Special sections on traditional crafts, music, customs, etiquette and seasonal celebrations - including the famous Nadaam festival + Visiting Mongolia in winter + Wide range of literary excerpts, from Natsagdorj to Roy Chapman Andrews + Dinosaurs and recent discoveries by the American Museum of Natural History Review

"...spread after spread of majestic colour photos, and a thorough, curiously successful mix of personal narrative, cultural primer, and literary excerpts. Great for pre-trip inspiration, and perfect bedside reading while snuggled up in your ger..." - Wanderlust
