Gessar Khan was a mythical hero of Tibet and also well loved amongst the nomadic Mongolian tribes that roamed the steppes of Central Asia. Tales of his exploits were carried by word of mouth and related orally for centuries by these people around their campfires during the long, cold winter nights. Tales of monsters, demons, dragons and maidens in distress, which have always filled children with delight, fill these pages to entertain and enlighten the reader.
