Empire of the Steppes: Land of Genghis Khan

A colorful and informative guide to the land of the Genghis Khan - whose empire once extended from China to Europe - as it adjusts to life in the 21st century. Much of the old Mongolia is still to be found; herdsmen, horses and hospitality. And yet daily, people flock to seek a more modern lifestyle in Ulaan Baatar, the capital city. The Mongolians have shaken off the mantle of communism and are eagerly recreating their own national identity. This book helps the traveler better understand this country while providing essential information for making a really worthwhile visit to this rugged and incomparable land.
