Men and Gods in Mongolia PDF
Part of the Routledge Revivals series
First published in 1935, Men & Gods in Mongolia is rare and unusual travel book that takes the reader into the virtually unknwon world of Mongolia, a country only now opening up to the West.
Henning Haslund was a Swedish Explorer who accompanied Sven Hedin and other explorers into Mongolia and Central Asia in the 1920s and 30s. Haslund takes the reader to the lost city of Karakota in the Gobi desert, introduces the reader to the Bodgo Gegen, a God-king in Mongolia, and allows the reader to meet Dambin Jansang, the dreaded warlord of the 'Black Gobi'. Alongside the esoteric and mystical material, there is plenty of adventure; caravans across the Gobi desert; kidnapped and held for ransom; initation into shamanic societies; encounters with warlords; and the violent birth of a new nation.
