TEXT: NATURAL CLASSIC

I'm a very keen reader, but selecting the book with a natural history theme, which has influenced me most was some challenge, until I thought back to my childhood. Then it was easy.

Where the book came from is a mystery, and I have never met anyone who has heard of it. It is Rita Richie's The Golden Hawks of Genghis Khan. I read it when I was about 10 years old and I re­member to this day the effect it had on me.

Set in 1218, it is a story of a rich boy whose parents are dead. He is growing up in the splendid city of Samarkand and has a fascination for hawks, those magnificent hunting birds. There is a great deal of mystery surrounding his past, but he is led to believe that a band of Mongols killed his father to steal a rare type of bird the golden hawk. Determined to get these birds back, he runs away from Samarkand and joins a group of people travelling to the country of Mongolia. What follows is a grand adventure centred on the city of Karakorum, where the great Mongol chief Genghis Khan was then based.

The book combines adventure, mystery, honour, friendship, danger, suffering all seen through the eyes of the young hero, Jalair. I still find this fantasy a thrilling read. Jalair's great love for the birds was enviable and inspiring. But most of all it was the sense of place that stayed with me. The book gives the reader an idea of the vast open spaces of central Asia and its huge skies, without the use of the long descriptive passages that would bore a child. There are no boundaries. The emptiness of the Gobi Desert, the Tian Shan mountains and the excitement of riding through forests and over rolling hills fascinated me.

The book gave me more than hawks, horses and a desire for wild places. It also gave me a set of values. The Mongols in The Golden Hawks were totally uninterested in possessions, a characteristic that is absolutely essential for people who spent their lives travelling from place to place. They were never mean. Generosity, good will and optimism were highly valued, hard work was enjoyed and the rest was pure fun. They simply loved life.

Two years ago, I fulfilled a lifelong ambition and went riding in Mongolia's mountains. I was not disappointed.

Writing Comprehension

What kind of thing would you like to disappear from them? Are all papers and sites objective? Talk about the differ­ent ones and say what their standpoint is. Will all newspapers be replaced with their electronic version pretty soon?

2. Every country has problems with pollution: smoke in the air, dead fish in the water, and trash on the ground. Everybody knows it is not good, but why do you think we continue to pollute? Facto­ries that pollute rivers or oil tankers that pollute the sea — which is worst? What are some ways to prevent pollution? Choose something in particular and explain how you would find a solution in order to correct or at least better the situation from its current status.

3.Imagine that you have just written a best-seller on how to keep fit. Now you are answering your readers questions: "Don't you think that our society is too obsessed with problems of weight and fitness?", "Do you know of any special diets that guarantee success?", "Do people follow diets for reasons other that fitness and health?", "Does the way the western world eats have any effect on world food problems?" etc. You are anxious to dispel some popular misconceptions your readers may be victims of and state your point of view.
