Balca, the Doctor of the Steppe



The Göktürks initiate a tremendous struggle for independence, aiming to revive their fallen customs and rebuild their collapsed cities from the dusty pages of history. As all signs of the Dragon Year point towards independence, the brave people of the Karluk tribe have sworn to stand by anyone who rebels against China. In the time span from Kürşad’s rebellion to Aşina Fenzi, there is no shortage of spilled blood and shed tears. At a moment when hope seems to be dwindling, a secret letter from the Çogay Mountains breathes hope into parched hearts. The key to strengthening Kutluğ Bey’s organization lies hidden in the healer of the Karluk tribe, Balca. You will read about the incredible struggle for inde pendence of the Göktürks alongside the heal- er of the steppe, Balca. Simultaneously, you will marvel at the origins of many Turkic customs and see how advanced Turkic medicine truly is. When you realize that many inventions believed to be of Chinese origin actually originated from the Uyghurs, you will understand that their present-day struggle for independence is not in vain. You will also realize that their independence signifies the independence of Turkish culture as well.
