Exodus by Ruth Cox
Almost twenty years ago, a group of strange people met on a beach in Thailand and decided to undertake a journey of a lifetime, crossing Mongolia on horseback. Meeting in Ulan Bator a year later, they soon ran into a couple of difficulties but eventually set out with two horses and a horse cart into the unknown on their very own adventure.
The author writes with a lot of humour about the difficulties of group dynamics, strange and wonderful encounters on the road, meeting wolves and horse thieves and experiencing the country of Gengis Khan in a very unique way.
