M Is for Mongolia (Alphabetical World) (Hardcover)
Welcome to Mongolia with its yaks, camels, and rippling sweeps of grassland with horsemen galloping by. A hunter with his falcon passes over desert sands that conceal the bones of dinosaurs, children herd reindeer through thick, green forests, and fermented mare's milk hangs in a bag, waiting to be shared with friends.
About the Author
Tricia Morrissey Ready lives in San Francisco, California, a very long way from Mongolia. She comes from a family of explorers who taught her to enjoy learning about all kinds of people, whether they live next door or far, far away. When not writing, she spends her days reading, talking with friends, and baking cookies. Tricia shares her adventures with a funny husband and two wonderful children. Born into a family of artists in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, Turburam Sandagdorj has been described as the man with his magic scissors. Mongolia's past and present is magically captured in Turburam's images. He portrays his own history and legacy in astonishing detail in his papercuts. A graduate of the College of Fine and Decorative Arts and the National University of Design, he has won numerous awards including 1st prize in the book illustration competition for the 750th Anniversary of ""The Secret History of The Mongols"". A Laureate of the Mongolian Artists Union and an Academic of the Chinggis Khaan Academy, his work has been exhibited in Ulaanbaatar, as well as Germany, Japan, Lithuania, Norway, and Poland.
