"Mongolia has changed remarkably little since the days of its medieval Hero, the WarLord Chinggis Khan. Famed for its cloudless blue skies,
Eagle flight
it is a country of varied terrain: icy mountains and lakes, wind-swept steppe, wolf and bear forests and vast desert. It is a beautiful,in parts uninhabitable, landscape."

"The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies and chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters. " -

 -- Чингис Хаан - Chinggis Khan -
The original source of this quote is hard to track.
Howorth (1876, p. 404) quotes it and attributes it to an early 19th century history in French by Baron d'Ohsson.
The possibility it's a fabrication can't be wholly ruled out.
