History of Genghis Khan PDF book by Jacob Abbott

Excerpt from the introduction:


The word khan is not a name, but a title means chieftain or king. It is a word used in various forms by the different tribes and nations that from time immemorial have to inhabit- ed central Asia and has been applied to a great number of potentates and rulers that have from time to time arisen among them. Genghis Khan was the greatest of these princes. He was, in fact, one of the most renowned conquerors who exploit history records. As in all other cases occurring in the series of histories to which this work belongs, where the events narrated took place at such a period or in such a part of the world that positively reliable and authentic information in respect to them can now no longer be obtained, the author is not responsible for the actual truth of the narrative which he offers, but only for the honesty and fidelity with which he has compiled it from the best sources of information now within reach.
