"An Unforgettable Tale!"-New Amazon 5 Star Review

5.0 out of 5 stars
 An Unforgettable Tale! August 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
I am sure that many of us have had the fantasy of finding buried treasure, and not just for the treasure itself, but for the adventure or maybe even the fame. This book gives you all of that and more as the author tells a tale of adventure and danger all while adding a good dose of ancient Mongol history. To be the main character, Kate Barrows can be reckoned to Indiana Jones searching for a lost tomb. That in itself would make this book a really good read, but the author adds world superpower confrontation and that really makes things interesting. It's a thrilling story that will keep you reading until it's over. It's a very easy story to get lost in and spend an afternoon with. The book is intelligently written and is a treat for your mind. I really like the way the author brings his characters to light and allows the reader to engage with them and "feel" the story. This is a perfect book for any history buff or avid treasure hunter as it will provide both an adventure and history lesson in the process. This is a must read for anyone interested in this genre.

What ramifications would ensue from the discovery of Genghis Khan's Tomb and Treasure?

If after 800 years of searching the tomb of the Mongol conqueror with a massive treasure was discovered today what are the likely consequences? The potential results would be a huge problem for the Mongolian government.

First the tomb of  their national hero is considered sacred by so many Mongols. If in their eyes it was being desecrated it might create civil unrest in the nation.

Second thieves, grave robbers and treasure hunters would be planning how to get their hands on its wealth . Every security measure available would be needed to protect the tomb

If the crypt was respectfully excavated by top archaeologists, it would take years to do so. 
Each artifact must be carefully removed, cleaned and cataloged.Meanwhile an interested world would be clamoring for information. 

Because Genghis Khan conquered such a vast area covering so many countries today the some of the items might be identifiable by experts as to their places of origin. Iran, Russia, Iraq, India, China, Korea and many others might seek redress. This information could spawn lawsuits by nations, religious institutions and individuals seeking recovery of the artifacts thereby flooding the courts. The problem for the plaintiffs is that it might decades if not generations to get even
questionable resolutions.

If the value and scope of the treasure is as enormous as many speculate, countries might take matters into their own hands. Such a scenario is described in "The Guardian of Genghis Khan's Tomb"
This e book  is currently under consideration by no less than six movie production studios
in Southern California. It is available at most outlets for just $2.99. The novel's free blog can be found at

Was Genghis Khan's Your Ancestor?

While it’s impressive just how many countries and millions of square miles of land Genghis Khan conquered, it may be that his greatest accomplishment was fathering so many offspring. By the year 1260 it was estimated that 20,000 people were his direct descendants. Genetic scientists have determined that today there are countless millions that are related to the Great Conqueror.

It is not surprising that the spoils of his wars must have included hundreds of young women that were brought to his bed. Many must have left it pregnant. Today it is estimated that 1 in 200 people carry the genes of Genghis Khan. Below you will find links with articles that speak to the genetic impact of Genghis Khan.

Also you will note that not everyone believes that he was really Green because of the genocide for which he was responsible. These skeptics say that the Global Warming proponents are merely ‘trying to use historical lemons to make lemonade’ to support their arguments!

Is Genghis Khan a Hero to Global Warming Advocates?

According to papers released to support the argument that Global Warming threatens the planet, Genghis Khan may have done more to cool the planet than anyone else in history.

The Great Conqueror was responsible for slaughtering an estimated 40,000,000 people from 1206 until 1227. The logic the advocates use is that the humans then had cleared forests to make the land suitable for farming. Trees not only produce oxygen but absorb carbon dioxide. Furthermore, people and their livestock create huge amounts of methane gas which they reason causes the earth’s temperature to rise.

Genghis Khan’s widespread genocide they figure accomplished two things benefiting the environment. The first was that it eliminated a major and recurring source of methane. Second, it allowed for the natural reforestation of 22% of the earth’s land. They theorize that Genghis Khan’s mass murders resulted in a reduction in 700 million tons of carbon from the atmosphere.

The Mother Nature Network reports that Julia Pongratz and her colleague Ken Caldeira of the Carnegie Institute’s Department of Global Ecology espouse these ideas and position.

The Forging of an Empire

Genghis Khan knew that he must be both wise and ruthless in order to build on his conquests. He allowed his men to keep a portion of the plunder. Inhabitants of towns and villages that had not defied or resisted were usually divided into categories. The fairest of the women and the oldest of the children were taken as captives. They would later be used or sold as slaves. The youngest children were many times slaughtered because they would slow the army down. Skilled artisans were spared in order to help build in Mongolia and to teach their craft. Some men surrendering without a fight were given the option of joining Genghis Khan’s forces.

The largest cities that submitted without a fight might be allowed to remain as vassals after their oath of allegiance to Genghis Khan only to be forced to pay huge annual tribute.

However, when the Mongols approached a fortified city they would put some women and children taken from the surrounding area in front of their army to be human shields against the arrows and weapons of the town’s defenders.  The soldiers from the city were then often ordered to fire at their own wives and children. Sometimes they could not bring themselves to shoot disobeying orders. This created much dissension among the defending troops making it easier for Genghis Khan’s army to capture the city.

After ransacking the town it was usually burned to the ground leaving the surviving inhabitants without shelter. The lion’s share of the gold, silver and jewels were sent back to the Mongol capital along with the largest herds of livestock.

Genghis Khan wanted the Mongol people to benefit but not become soft from the things of value he sent back. He had observed this “weakness” in China’s wealthy population and saw it as a curse. He wanted his son and their sons to rule over a lasting and growing empire. His youth of hunger and poverty had taught life was hard and he did not want this difficult lesson lost on the Mongols. So it was that the store of his wealth continued to grow and grow

Word of the wrath and destruction of Genghis Khan’s army quickly spread terror and panic throughout unconquered lands and people everywhere. Soon the approaching Mongols would bring a sense of paralysis to a large portion of the populace facilitating Genghis Khan’s invasion plans.
