Danish-Swedish explorer Haslunds first book on his exciting explorations in Mongolia and Central Asia. Haslund takes us via camel caravan to the medieval world of Mongolia, a country still barely known today.
First published by Kegan Paul of London in 1934, this rare travel adventure is back in print after 50 years. Haslund and his camel caravan journey across the Gobi Desert. He meets with renegade generals and warlords, god-kings and shamans.
Haslund is captured, held for ransom, thrown into prison, battles black magic and portrays in vivid detail the birth of a new nation.
