Motivated to read this book after seeing the 2007 film "Mongol," and intrigued by the its credentials as Thomas Cook Travel Book of the Year and Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Travel essay, I was still rather disappointed that the writer lingered for 3/4 of the book before reaching his goal then rushed through the very lands that defined and created the great Khan. Stewart may be in the mold of Kapuscinski and Bryson, but in this book he doesn't quite rise to either of them.
