TPZ032 Encore: 6,000 Miles by Horseback on the Eurasian Steppe with Tim Cope

Tim Cope horseback adventure



For 3 years Tim Cope traveled by horseback through the Eurasian steppe from the ancient capital city of Karakoram in Mongolia to the Danube River in Hungary.  It was a 6000-mile journey last attempted in the days on Ghengis Khan.  For most of the journey he was alone except for his horses and his dog named Tigon.  The adventure was a tribute to the nomadic way of life.  Along the way he encountered a cast of very interesting characters.  Some were thieves not to be trusted yet most proved to be incredibly generous.  You can learn more by reading his book titled On The Trail of Genghis Khan, An Epic Journey Through the Land of the Nomads – and from his website timcopejourneys.com.  Tim Cope, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.

Jennifer Steinman & Sevan Matossian


Jennifer Steinman’s documentary film Desert Runners has won numerous awards at film festivals around the world. It tells the story of four amateur athletes competing for the 4 Deserts Grand Slam which is accomplished by finishing four 250 km ultramarathons in a calendar year. The movie shows how challenging and dangerous it can be to race in the most inhospitable places on earth – the Atacama, the Gobi, the Sahara, and Antarctica. You can learn more about the film at desertrunnersmovie.com and more about Jennifer at jennifersteinman.com. Jennifer Steinman, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.
