Pita Kelekna has uploaded another segment of her book, The Horse In Human History to This Side of the Pond. Entitled, The Horse in Mongol War, Hunt, and Peace, Kelekna chronicles the exploits of both Ghenghis and Kubilai Khan (along with his less terrifying brother Hulegu) and the ways in which horses helped to make them household names today.
The Mongols lived off the horse; as they traveled, they milked and slaughtered for food. Their empire would bridge a continent, and their methods sped technological innovation into the modern era.
Let me know if you ordered a copy of this book and have read it. I have not yet received my copy. Is it as good as it looks?
