Beasts, Men and Gods - an exploration of mystic Mongolia by Ferdinand Ossendowski
Published 1921 Includes Ossendowski biography and period photographs
The Russian, Dr. Ossendowski, was a man of long and diverse experience as a scientist and writer whose training for careful observation helps put the stamp of accuracy and reliability on his accounts. He is best known for his book, Beast, Men and Gods, a book of mystery and intrigue, a story of travel through mysterious lands on the cusp of revolutionary change. A must read book, which will make you think and wonder at the power of prophecy. Characterized as "The Robinson Crusoe of the Twentieth Century," he touched the feature of the narrative which is at once most attractive and most dangerous; for the succession of trying and thrilling experiences recorded seems in places too highly colored to be real or, sometimes, even possible in this day and generation. Describes violent events during the Russian Revolution in Siberia. Ossendowski closes off his book with the prophecy of the King of the World in which in short, it is stated materialism will devastate the earth, terrible battles will engulf the nations of the world, and at the climax of the bloodshed in 2029, the people of Agharta will rise out of their cavern world.
