About the Author


Own a Real Mongolian Ger

BioRegions International is a non-profit organization working to empower the nomadic cultures of Mongolia to survive in a rapidly-changing world. They import genuine gers from Mongolia.

  • All proceeds will benefit local communities in Mongolia, directly supported projects with the semi-nomadic people of the Darhad Valley, northern Mongolia.
  • These gers are 5-walled gers, hand-painted with traditional Mongolian colors, and 21 feet in diameter.

Camping: Yurt Style

Idaho State University maintains a system of five backcountry yurts, each located amid spectacular scenery. The general public can rent yurts for weekend getaways, and the yurts are spaced ideally for yurt-to-yurt travel.

Yurts: Living in the Round
by Becky Kemery

"Becky Kemery's Yurts: Living in the Round is to books what a home run with three players on base is to baseball! It couldn't be better than this! Becky's book is full of practical information that's written in a clear and concise prose. It's packed with beautiful photographs and is graced by delightful stories of people who have made their next home a yurt. I highly recommend this book to anyone who's pondering ways to live more sustainably on this precious Earth."
