The Mongols were nomadic warriors of legendary skill and savagery. Their empire encompassed the majority of the known world, from southern Asia to northern Europe, from the Middle East for the Sea of Japan. For the Chinese, there seemed only a single solution: to turn their country into a vast fortress. Now the fierce and unstoppable horsemen were bearing down on China.
The winner of many awards, this series is renowned for Elizabeth Mann's capability to convey adventure and excitement while revealing technical information in engaging and easily understood language. The illustrations are lavishly realistic and correct in detail but do not ignore the human element. Outstanding within the genre, these books are sure to bring even possibly the most indifferent young reader into the worlds of history, geography, and architecture.
