Description:

temperatures: Tim Cope's horseback traverse of the Eurasian Steppe - Mongolia to Hungary - is full of hardship, characters and insights ... It's a big undertaking for readers too, but it opens up a vast, little-trodden world of history, danger and adventure Wanderlust It is the ultimate boy's own adventure. In an epic 6,000 mile journey on horseback, lasting for more than three gruelling years, Tim Cope braved dangers, scorching deserts, subzero mountain temperatures and some of the world's most inhospitable terrain. Most of us would not survive even a day in the windswept wilderness and wolf-infested plateaux of Mongolia and Kazakhstan, but Cope was determined to follow a childhood dream Dalya Alberge, Sunday Times One of the most vibrant and engaging narrators you might find ... It is a vast journey enjoyably meandering in an age of Twitter soundbites ... By turns informative, gripping and very moving: a major endeavour, which flings off the straightjacket of its sub-genre and stands (or rides) alone Joanna Kavenna, Spectator Reading On The Trail, it is impossible to not get swept up in Tim's infectious sense of adventure. His story is an amazing one, but he also approaches it in such a way that you'll think that it might be possible for you to attempt an epic adventure of your own. That's the kind of inspiration that Tim creates through his writing TheAdventureBlog New book inspires Mongolia visits: Intrepid travellers looking for destinations that are genuinely off the beaten track have been inspired by a new book by the Australian adventurer Tim Cope in which he describes a journey by horseback following in the steps of the legendary Genghis Khan Adrian Bridge, Daily Telegraph I can honestly say that I've never read anything quite like it before ... With its interleaving of heart-on-the-sleeve personal narrative, shrewd modern observation and historical background Tim Severin The best way to travel, to see and understand a country, is on a horse of camel. Time Cope carries the art of long-distance riding to a new extreme in a feat comparable to that of the great Tschiffely as he goes On the Trail of Genghis Khan some 6,200 miles from Mongolia to Hungary. This young Australian writes confidently about his epic adventure, which lasted three years and followed the route taken by the Mongol hordes as they reached Europe and almost conquered it. He has barely ridden a horse before he set off and this story is really the tale of the creation of a serious long-distance rider, fluent in Russian and capable of making close friends Country Life
