Review Text

An adventure story, rich in action and scope, is this daring conception of conflict between two great Mongol warriors, grandsons of Genghis Khan, one a dedicated warrior, the other Kublai Khan of China who, having been civilized by the orientals, longs for peaceful pursuits. The two attitudes are irreconcilable, and despite the profound ties which bind these men, brother stands against brother in military and personal conflict. Mr. Baumann shows bold force and confidence in his panoramic handling of this vivid and complex world, and emerges with a story which is of primary dramatic and historical interest.
