Book Description:

'In the veins of the men of Tataristan courses the blood of Mongol, Hun, Macedonian and Chinese the fanaticism of Saladin s and Tamerlane s Islam, and a rich heritage of Chinese wile.'

This is the land and these are the countrymen of Ahmad Kamal s ancestors. A Muslim of Tartar stock, Mr. Kamal was born in America. His great grandfather fought against the Russians in Central Asia. More than a century later, his American descendant returned to renew the battle in the 1930s.

Kamal entered Turkestan through India and Tibet, crossing in mid winter the most formidable frontier in the world, the Himalayan passes. The account of this journey under constant threat of extinction from falling avalanches of snow begins a series of almost incredibly hazardous adventures, told with an authenticity that unrolls the whole richly colored tapestry of a strange, feudal, and barbaric land.
