Originally published in 1946, Mongolian Journey follows Henning Haslund's trip across Mongolia, inspired by the 'desire to see what was hidden on the other side of the farthest of all known passes.' It includes chapters on the younger generation of Mongolia, robber life in Mongolia, and Jasaktu Land, among many others.
