Genghis KhanWritten by Jack Weatherford and published in 2004, Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World provides insight into, debatably, the most successful conquering family in recorded history. The book takes you back in time, making it possible for you to relive the lives of Genghis Khan and his descendants. The book begins telling about how Genghis Khans mother, Hoelun, was taken from her soon-to-be husband by Yesugei, his father, and his brother. They take her back to their tribe and make her one of Yesugeis wives. Temujin, son of Yesugei and Hoelun, ended up in a power struggle with his half-brother very early on in his childhood. Temujin killed Begter, his half-brother, after an argument over hunting spoils. He also got kidnapped by a previously allied tribe, but he was freed by one of the sympathetic guards.As Temujins father had arranged by his untimely death, Temujin married Borte. Soon after, though, she was kidnapped by another tribe. After praying for three days at the sacred mountain Burkhan Khaldun, and with the help of his friend Jamuka and Ong Khan, he rescued his wife. Approximately nine months later, she gave birth to Temujins first son
