mongolbookjacketUuganaa skilfully interweaves the extraordinary story of her own childhood in Mongolia with the sadly short life of Billy, who becomes a symbol of union and disunion, cultures and complexity, stigma and superstition – and inspires Uuganaa to challenge prejudice and campaign to change attitudes.

Mongol is the touching story of one woman’s transformation from outsider to fearless champion of love, respect and tolerance. It’s a moving tribute by a remarkable woman to her beloved baby son, testifying to his lasting impact on a sometimes imperfect world.

Mongol won the Janetta Bowie Chalice Non-Fiction Book Award from the Scottish Association of Writers. Mongol is Uuganna’s first book.

She was named as Woman of The Year for Mongolians in Europe in 2012 by the Association for the Development of Mongolian Women in Europe.
