In 1911 he moved to the U.S. and began to write. Of his 35 novels about life in the Orient, several were best sellers and one, "King of the Khyber Rifles", was made into a most successful motion picture. It was not until a few days before his death that he turned over to his wife the manuscript for "I say sunrise" his only non-fiction book, which presents the philosophy he developed from a lifetime of adventure, study (archaeology and history) and observation of human nature. Talbot Mundy challenges us to discover, and prove to ourselves, that joy is stronger than sorrow, love is stronger than hatred, good is stronger than evil.
