'I am the land and the bones of the hills. I am the winter. 'Temujin, the second son of the khan of the Wolves tribe, was only eleven when his father died in an ambush. His family were thrown out of the tribe and left alone, without food or shelter, to starve to death on the harsh Mongolian plains. It was a rough introduction to his life, to a sudden adult world, but Temujin survived, learning to combat natural and human threats. A man, a small family, without a tribe was always at risk but he gathered other outsiders to him, creating a new tribal identity. It was during some of his worst times that the image of uniting the warring tribes and bringing the silver people together came to him. He will become the khan of the sea of grass, Genghis.

I was fascinated by the whole series and will listen to again
as a schoolboy history was the dullest lesson but this series brings the whole thing to life as they gallop over the plains
Jason is a very good narrator its so good to be without American narrators who in general spoil the stories
no crying or laughing just totally interesting
Keep em coming Conn Iggulden
