Abstract:

In 1167, in the harsh homeland of Mongol tribes, a child was born who was to change the course of human history. His father named him Temujin, but the world knows him as Genghis Khan. Set amid the barbaric splendor of the Mongol hordes, Ruler of the Sky is the powerful and engrossing story of the twelfth-century warrior who forged one of the greatest and most terrifying armies the world had ever seen, and conquered the world from Peking to Persia. Ruler of the Sky is his.

Story, but it is also the story of those who were closest to him, particularly the women who played such an important role in his life: Hoelun, the mother, who was determined that Temujin would survive when all his clan abandoned him; Bortai, for whom Temujin fought his first battle; Jamukhua, the childhood friend who was to become his most bitter enemy; and Khadagan, who risked her life for him. It is also the story of those whose lives were forever changed by Temujin's.

Conquests: Yisui and Yisugen, two Tatar sisters whose people Temujin had sworn to destroy; Gurbesu, the queen who faced him in battle; Khulan, the beauty who longed for peace in the midst of war; and Ch'i-kuo, the Chinese princess who saw her world destroyed. Ruler of the Sky presents an entire world - based on historical figures - and brings to life a time of often unendurable hardship and epic grandeur. From the harsh, windswept plains of Mongolia to the opulence and.

Sophistication of the Chinese court, Ruler of the Sky is unforgettable.
