Beasts, Men and Gods, by Ferdinand Ossendowski
BEASTS, MEN AND GODS
by
Ferdinand OssendowskiEXPLANATORY NOTE
When one of the leading publicists in America, Dr. Albert Shaw of the Review ofReviews, after reading the manuscript of Part I of this volume, characterized theauthor as "The Robinson Crusoe of the Twentieth Century," he touched thefeature of the narrative which is at once most attractive and most dangerous; forthe succession of trying and thrilling experiences recorded seems in places toohighly colored to be real or, sometimes, even possible in this day and generation.I desire, therefore, to assure the reader at the outset that Dr. Ossendowski is aman of long and diverse experience as a scientist and writer with a training forcareful observation which should put the stamp of accuracy and reliability on hischronicle. Only the extraordinary events of these extraordinary times could havethrown one with so many talents back into the surroundings of the "Cave Man"and thus given to us this unusual account of personal adventure, of great humanmysteries and of the political and religious motives which are energizing the"Heart of Asia."My share in the work has been to induce Dr. Ossendowski to write his story at thistime and to assist him in rendering his experiences into English.LEWIS STANTON PALEN.
