This is not the blood-soaked tale of the Mongols as many understand it. Morgan is one of the best minds in his field, and takes us on a trek through the origins of the Mongols and then into the rise of Chingis Khan (Genghis is only a Westernized form).

He details not only the 'what's of the Mongol conquest, but also the 'why's and 'how's. If you've ever wanted to know who the REAL Mongols were, check out this book!

(Don't worry, there are also plenty of tales of violence and savagery... but within their proper context!)
