The only book written by the Duke of Mongolia. A must read for anyone interested in Central Asia at the turn of the twentieth century. Larson is praised by all the great explorers of that time for his skill as a caravaner, his bravery and stoicism, and his compassion for the Mongolian land and peoples.

"Duke" Larson is mentioned by all explorers and adventurers who were in Central Asia at the turn of the century. His writing is unpretentious and yet colorful and informative. He speaks with personal knowledge of Sven Hedin, Roy Chapman Andrews and many others. Stories were told by many of Larson's ability to lead caravans and exist under extreme conditions.

Excellent book! And such great insight of Mongolia from about 1900-1930, through this man's eyes. You can tell he really loves Mongolia and the Mongol people. :-)
