In the Footsteps of Genghis Khan
John DeFrancis (au)
In mid-1930s, pre-WWII China, DeFrancis did not set out to make a 1,000-mile camel trek across the Gobi Desert, become the prisoner of a Muslim warlord, or travel 1,200 miles down the Yellow River on an inflated sheepskin raft. But these were just some of the adventures he experienced when he tried to retrace the footsteps of Genghis Khan & ended up dodging the fighting between the Communists & a coalition of forces under Chiang Kai-shek’s gov’t. & a cabal of Muslim warlords. Informed by an extensive knowledge of Chinese history & punctuated with keen observation & gentle humor, this narrative is a personal history that can be read both as a tale of high adventure in the wild west of China & as prelude to the present in that tortured land.
