Kirner has travelled extensively. In this book are tales of three of his trips from the 90s. In the first, he travelled to Russia to cross it with his bike on the trail of his father who fought in WW2 and was in Russian captivity for a while.
On his second trip he went to Mongolia to look for the babas, a huge group of stone statues that more or less look like this, with a short stop in the so-called Valley of the Dinosaurs.
The third trip brought him to Mongolia once more to live with a nomadic tribe who range through the north of the country, at least for a while.

The book is a very quick read and Kirner definitely has a sense for adventure. While there are interesting episodes, the whole book suffers from Kirner trying very hard not to show any prejudice and therefore making his prejudices even more notable.
