Reader's note

A 1953 edition of The Sands of Karakorum by James Ramsey Ullman. North of the Altai Mountains, north-west of the Gobi desert, in a still desolate land, stand the ruins of Karakorum; Karakorum, where legend has it Genghis Kahn was born; where the ancient capital of Mongolia stood; where the desert sands are no longer brown but black. The story is told by Knight, a journalist, two of whose friends had vanished in Red China. He had known and loved John and Eleanor Bickel in the days when they could carry out their missionary work - preaching and helping the sick-undisturbed.
