Reviews
Francis O'Donnell, Artist, Author, Explorer & Emmy Nominated Filmmaker of the PB

"In Chaturanga, [Katen] makes learning fun... [The book] is “full of wanderlust and adventure, one that Marco Polo himself would have recognized and enjoyed.”

Hussein Amery, Ph.D., Professor of International Relations, Colorado School of M

“This novel tells an exciting story through a historical, cultural, political and contemporary narrative that will captivate, educate and stimulate young adults." 

Larry Eubanks, Ph.D., Professor of Economics, University of Colorado at Colorado

"What a great story. And, what a great way to encourage the interest of teenagers in history, politics, current events, geography, and economics."

Lutz Kleveman, author of The New Great Game

"...written with panache and great scope.  Like Kipling’s ‘Kim’, it takes the reader on a journey through little-known Central Asia, a part of the world still as fascinating as it was 150 years ago.”

Steve Gardner, 2015 President of Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration

"'Chaturanga' will appeal not only to the young adult audience, but adults as well.  Energy politics is hard for many to grasp, especially if they have not had to worry about where their next tank of gas is coming from or whether their lights will come on.  Andrew Katen's perception of both geopolitical history and current events will help readers understand what is going on in today’s world."  

Troy Matthew Carnes, Teacher and Author of "Rasputin's Legacy"

"...a delightful romp, an epic adventure.  Engrossing, imaginative, and beautifully wrought, it is a tale of legend, lore and discovery that, like the best of books, will educate, fascinate, and resonate.  Katen's book is one that you will keep, share, and one day, want your own children to read."

Verner Johnson, Ph.D., Professional Geologist

"'Chaturanga' is an excellent novel for Junior and Senior level high school students  and young adults.”
