    When traditional Mongol weapons and tactics no longer were effective when attacking cities, Genghis Khan made changes; he adopted large weapons from the Persian, Chinese, and Arabs and developed new strategies. For instance, the Klamak people, now working to preserve their culture as well as the over-hunted saiga, may have descended from members of Khan's army stranded in Russia. This is a young man possessed of extraordinary courage, but also great sensitivity and respect. In an epic 6, 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. Through such tactics, Genghis Khan revolutionized traditional military tactics and created a more hybridized, multicultural army to defeat and conquer other empires.

    The anecdotes he relates are amazing, but it's Cope himself that provides the most inspiration. A journey of adventure, endurance and eventual triumph, On the Trail of Genghis Khan is at once a celebration of and an elegy for an ancient way of life. Inspired by the extraordinary life nomads lead, Tim Cope embarked on a journey that hadn't been successfully completed since those times: to travel on horseback across the entire length of the Eurasian steppe, from Karakorum, the ancient capital of Mongolia, through Kazakhstan, Russia, Crimea and the Ukraine to the Danube River in Hungary. The Scottish scientist Robert Chambers wrote: The leading characters of the various races of mankind are simply representatives of particular stages in the development of the highest or Caucasian type. His motive? At the heart of this daring journey is the bond between man and beast.

    Through such tactics, Genghis Khan revolutionized traditional military tactics and created a more hybridized, multicultural army to defeat and conquer other empires.

Cope bears witness to how the traditional ways hang in the balance in the post-Soviet world — an era that has brought new-found freedom, but also the perils of corruption and alcoholism, and left a world bereft of both the Communist system upon which it once relied, and the traditional knowledge of the nomadic forefathers.
