This extensive work accurately reflects life in Mongolia and for its inhabitants, in the world of the 21st century. Awesome images are interspersed with enthralling narrative reports, Mongolian legends and descriptions of Mongolian places of interest. This unique book concept is topped off with over 30 interviews with a wide range of Mongolians, including one with the Olympic bronze medal winner at shooting, Munkhbayar Dorjsuren, who is a member of the German Olympic Team. It is considered as the standard work on Mongolia.

I bought this book in Germany (it is written in German and English) and its 384 pages are packed with stunning photographs and easy narrative.
This book works not only as a coffee table tome but also
as a detailed view of the country and its people.
To sum up an excellent book well worth the €25 I paid as it allows an insight into a little known country or its peoples.

About the author (2012)

Frank Riedinger lebt bei seinen ausgedehnten Reisen im Land mehrere Monate mitten unter der Bevölkerung. Er ist aber nicht nur für diese begrenzte Zeit seiner Aufenthalte ein vollwertiger Teil von Ihr. Diesem Umstand verdankt er es, in einschlägigen Fachmagazinen im In- und Ausland fundierte Berichte über Land und Leute veröffentlicht zu haben. Mit seinen Artikeln trägt er wesentlich dazu bei, die uralte und traditionsreiche Kultur verstehen zu lernen. Dieses Buch zeichnet ein authentisches Bild der heutigen Mongolei zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts.
