On the Trail of Genghis Khan: An Epic Journey Through the Land of the Nomads
Winner: Banff Mountain Festival Best Adventure Travel Book 2013

A “world-class adventurer.” Outside

A few years ago, Australian adventurer Tim Cope undertook a journey none had completed since the days of Genghis Khan: He traveled by horseback across the entire Eurasian steppe, from the ancient capital of Mongolia to the Danube River. It was an incredible 6,000-mile, three-year-long trip across a vast and formidable landscape – and into the heart of a nomadic way of life that dominated the region for millennia. In a riveting multimedia presentation, this rugged explorer will discuss his trek over wolf-infested plateaus, glaciers and the subzero steppe, desert, deep forests and mountains, accompanied only by his trusty dog and horses.
