Read full description of the books Amgalant One: The Old Ideal:
Temujin comes into the world on the day the Mongols suffer a catastrophic defeat in battle. He isn't the hero type, but he has expectations to live up to, and he has a cause: freedom for his way of life, unity against China, where a nomad is an animal.
‘Through great fear have I lived; Through great grace I have my life.’ – from Temujin’s thanksgiving to his Sacred Mountain, which he believes has intervened to save him from an enemy. In The Secret History of the Mongols, committed to paper on the death of the figure we know as Genghis Khan, his own words, his own memories can be found. Those of his youth, that was hand-to-mouth and tooth-and-nail – when by his own lights he was least of a hero, but had to learn fast – are particularly vivid.
Amgalant One follows The Secret History step by step, incident to incident, as an unlikely lad grows into his kingly name, Tchingis.
(This is Of Battles Past and When I am King together)
Read information about the authorI have been fascinated by steppe cultures from a young age, although I wrote more SF/F when young. In the vast world of fiction, I’ve liked nothing better than works of the medieval imagination – folk epic and romance. So when I made the earnest acquaintance of The Secret History of the Mongols – late enough in life to feel equipped for a major task – I felt the stars had aligned for my writing.
About me, I never have much to say. The quieter your life, the more time you have to read and write. Not that I don’t live wildly now and then. I’m Australian, ex-British. I enjoy tea, scotch I can’t afford, walks by the sea, and my bookshelves: I have the industrial pipe look in charcoal, and I have French pot stands, which are curly metal racks.
