He Who Goes First
(Kevin J. Curtis)
Once one begins reading "He Who Goes First," by Kevin J. Curtis, he or she is suddenly "transported" to what appears in many ways, to be another world. It is a glimpse into the life of a man, who was a warrior, a husband, a father, a philosopher, and a soldier in the greatest army of all time. It is the 13th century, and Genghis Khan is the ruler of more land than anyone has ever dominated before.
The short, stocky men, ride short stocky horses and wield swords and bows that are so powerful, that modern men would have great difficulty pulling one back; especially from the back of a galloping horse. Yet these men have been born into a unique point in history, and they have the job of conquering a land that was formerly lawless.
The author delves into the feelings and the spirituality of these nomadic people from Mongolia. The reader comes away with a new appreciation of this pivotal point in history, and perhaps of their own life and time on Earth.
