Life, Death and Resurrection
Genghis Khan is one of history's immortals: a leader of genius and the founder of the world's greatest land empire - twice the size of Rome's. His mysterious death in 1227 placed all at risk, so it was kept a secret until his heirs had secured his conquests. Secrecy has surrounded him ever since. His discovered grave, with its imagined treasures, remains the subject of intrigue and speculation.
This book is more than just a gripping account of Genghis' rise and conquests. John Man uses first-hand experiences to reveal the khan's enduring influence. He is the first writer to explore the hidden valley where Genghis may have died, and one of the few westerners to climb the sacred mountain where he was probably buried.
