Gessar-Khan: A Legend of Tibet

Ida Zeitlin (Author)

Gessar Khan was the mythical hero of Tibet and also well loved amongst the nomadic Mongolian tribes that roamed the steppes of central Asia. Tales of his exploits were carried by word of mouth and related orally for centuries by these people around their campfires and during the long and cold winter nights.

Tales of monsters, demons, dragons and maidens in distress, which have always filled children with delight, fill these pages to entertain and enlighten the reader. This book is also a living source of material on the modes of speech and customs of the nomadic tribes of the Siberian Steppe.

This well illustrated book provides us with a great deal of insight into the hopes and fears of a people who have always remained a mystery behind a wall of secrecy, which even today hangs over their lives like a dark shroud hiding them away from the world's view.
