Kazakhstan: Nomadic Routes from Caspian to Altai: 2012

Kazakhstan: Nomadic Routes from Caspian to Altai: 2012 (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


A country larger than Western Europe, Kazakhstan could fit all of the other former Central Asian Soviet member states within its borders with space to spare. Encompassed within this vast expanse is the Great Steppe, across which Genghis Khan's Mongol hordes galloped; to the south are the heights of the Tien Shan, through whose foothills Silk Road travellers journeyed; in the northeast the exquisite lakes and valleys of the Altai mountains lie waiting for adventurous souls to discover, and in the far west the Caspian Sea offers a Riviera setting for one of the world's most landlocked nations. With independence and the discovery of oil has come huge change and now this land of rich history, welcoming people and whirling bazaars is intent on sharing its wonders with a curious world. In the style of the cerebral guidebook series from Odyssey, the real Kazakhstan is revealed with information on the land and its people, and the exploration for the traveller of the diverse regions - from the city of Almaty to the Great Steppe and the Silk Roads of southern Kazakhstan. It features 578 pages with 330 colour photos and 19 maps.

Dagmar Schreiber studied philosophy in Leningrad (St Petersburg) and Moscow, before joining the World Bank study project on living standards in Kazakhstan in 1994. During this three-year project she fell in love with the country, and decided to dedicate the rest of her professional life to it. During numerous far-reaching trips she became aware of its enormous potential for tourism, and formed a small, Berlin-based tour agency in 2003, specialising in environmentally friendly tours of the real Kazakhstan. Jeremy Tredinnick is a freelance writer, photographer and editor who is based in Hong Kong. Born in London, England, he fled his homeland straight out of school, intent on getting a taste of more exotic worlds in all their glory. An inveterate traveller, he eventually found his niche in Hong Kong, where he has split his career between bouts of Asian travel, writing features and making images for many of the region's top travel magazines and newspapers, and periods of full-time employment as editor-in-chief of Action Asia magazine, managing editor of inflight publications Silk Road, Dynasty and Morning Calm, among others.
