Join adventurer and author Tim Cope as he brings to life the amazing true story of a man, his dog and an epic adventure Tim and Tigon, based on the new kids’ version of the his popular adults’ book On The Trail of Genghis Khan

About the book:

Adventurer Tim Cope had a childhood dream: to travel the 10,000 kilometres from Mongolia to Hungary on horseback – a journey undertaken centuries ago by the legendary leader of the Mongols, Genghis Khan. On this journey, Tim met a dog called Tigon.

For more than three years, Tim and Tigon endured searing heat and bitter cold; dark lonely nights when wolves circled their camp; hunger; despair; joy; and the wild beauty of the landscape that changed constantly around them. They met the people of the steppe, who welcomed Tim and Tigon into their homes, and shared their traditions and histories.

This is the story of a unique journey – a journey filled with the spirit of the pioneering explorers of old.

It is the story of an extraordinary friendship.
