 Lonely Planet Mongolia and "Dateline Mongolia"
Michael Kohn, a freelance journalist and travel writer, is a specialist on Mongolian culture and society. From 1998 to 2000 he served as the resident foreign editor for the Mongol Messenger, a weekly newspaper in Mongolia. He simultaneously reported for various international news outlets, including BBC radio and the Associated Press. When not on assignment Michael became acquainted with life on the ground by hitchhiking to the most remote corners of Mongolia to hike in the mountains and live with nomadic herders. Since 2003 Michael has worked for Lonely Planet and has written more then ten guidebooks, including Tibet, Israel, South Africa, Armenia and Mongolia. In 2007, Peter, the director of Blue Bandana/Active Mongolia assisted Michael with the new Lonely Planet Mongolia edition by researching all the Gobi Aimags.

 Dateline Mongolia: an American Journalist in Nomads Land (345 pages RDR Books),

is Michael's account of the three years he spent working for the Mongolian state news agency in the late 1990s. His in depth reportage, earned during years spent reporting for the Associated Press and the BBC, takes the reader on an epic journey from the political intrigues of the capital to the resurgent Buddhist monasteries and to vast steppes where nomads still struggle to survive off the land.
