Mongols get own biography of legendary leader

At last Mongolians will be able to read all about Genghis Khan in their own language. The New China News Agency said the first Mongolian-language biography of the Mongolian warrior (1162-1227) will be published in April. The author, Saixiyerl, took 10 years to write the 600,000-word book, which includes previously unpublished pictures of relics and scrolls.

There are some 40 monographs about Genghis Khan in a variety of languages. This is the first time a Mongolian scholar has written a complete biography.
