Note
While Ian Robinson was born and raised in rural New Zealand, hes covered a lot of ground since then. Hes done it the hard way too backpacking through South America, China, Tibet, Nepal and India. In 1992 he was living in London, and was seized with the idea of travelling across Mongolia, and despite opposition from friends, family and so-called experts who claimed it was impossible, he went on to became the first westerner to cross Mongolia alone on horseback. His battle to find guides, horses and a safe place to sleep in some of the worlds wildest and most inhospitable surroundings is an extraordinary testament to his courage, ingenuity and determination. Gantsara alone across Mongolia tells the fascinating, sometimes frightening and often hilarious story of his amazing journey. From falling in love with an enchanting girl in Ulan Bator to being chased across the steppes by drunken bandits, his story is never dull and is full of the affection and respect he developed for the warm and vital people he came to know and love along the way
