Describes the Gobi's national parks, its snowcapped mountains, sandstone canyons, towering dunes, and 'singing sands'. Also covers its fleeting snow leopards, its desert bears, and the world's only species of wild horse. In concluding chapters the author describes the ancient land of the Gobi on the brink of change, as the population increases, the herdsmen become owners of motorbikes, and the pressure on wildlife grows. By retracing the steps of early explorers, living with herdsmen, and drawing on the most recent scientific work, Man has created the first accessible portrait of this little-known wilderness.
