Synopsis:

An Astounding Tale of Adventure

Dr. Ossendowski, a Pole whose life had been that of a scientist, a Professor, a prominent public official in old Russia, was forced to fly from Bolshevik assassins into the wild life of the Yenisei forests, in a sub-arctic winter with practically no outfit but an ax, a rifle and some cartridges. His story of a marvelous journey of thousands of miles, of hairbreadth escapes, and of visits to the inmost sanctuary of ‘the living Buddha,’ is told with obvious sincerity, with the lurid precision of a scientist, and with a restraint that is amazing.

“I consider it the most extraordinarily interesting manuscript I have passed under my eye for years.” -Dr. Albert Shaw, Editor, The Review of Reviews

“A book of astounding, breathtaking, enthralling adventure.” -The New York Times

“The author paints on a huge canvas scenes, characters, and dramatic crises which only the man possessing a natural storytelling gift could achieve. Through it all breathes the air of strong men in action, quick-witted and desperate, against a gorgeous background of Oriental mystery and diabolism. It is unquestionably one of the most interesting books of the year, destined to satisfy both the serious reader who studies the Orient and the reactions of the World War, and the reader who simply enjoys a forthright yarn of adventure with thrills in it surpassing the most fervid inventions of the ‘movie’ dramatist.” -Catholic World

“Dr. Ossendowski adds to his narrative of appalling experiences a series of chapters on the mysteries and possibilities of Mongolia and the aroused Mongolians that give the reader startingly new ideas as to what is, or may be, going on in these hidden depths of Asia.” -The New York Herald

“It is, every word of it, tragically true. No novel could hold the thrills of this book.” -The Trend

“It is one of the most enthralling and interesting human documents that I have yet seen.” –Isaac Marcosson
