Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. 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.'

Synopsis:

An exciting new addition to Odyssey's "Companion" series, exploring Mongolia's history, culture and geography through insightful writing, plenty of practicalities, and beautiful imagery.

About the Author

American-born Carl Robinson first came to Asia as a Peace Corps worker in Vietnam, before becoming a news correspondent during that country's seminal war with the USA. In 1977 he moved to Australia, where he worked as a foreign correspondent for Newsweek magazine. An extended trip to Mongolia opened his heart and mind to this fascinating country, and formed the inspiration and basis for the book Mongolia. He is based in Queensland, Australia.
