Description: Rescued from obscurity and profiled in compelling detail are eleven explorers, scientists, mystics, and adventurers -- including two indomitable women -- who journeyed through Central Asia between 1890 and 1935 and brought back its secrets, treasures, and knowledge, along with fascinating accounts of their travels. Biplanes buffeted by gales in the Himalayas; shootouts between bandits and paleontologists on the Mongolian Steppes; priceless art treasures and manuscripts found along the ancient Silk Road -- these are among the real-life adventures recorded in The Alluring Target.

"Wimmel, a retired U.S. Foreign Service officer, discusses Swedish explorer Sven Hedin, English braggart celebrity adventurer Arnold Henry Savage Landor, French mystic Alexandra David Neel, and dashing American scientist-explorer Roy Chapman Andrews (who is said to be the model for Indiana Jones)". -- Library Journal
