Echoing  Steppe


 

Where? What is the Steppe?

 
 

 
  Steppe:  level, grassy treeless plain, esp in SE Europe and central Asia (--Oxford Adbanced Learner's Dictionary of Current English). 

the Steppe, belt of grassland that extends some 5,000 miles (8,000 kilometres) from Hungary in the west through Ukraine and Central Asia to Manchuria in the east. Mountain ranges interrupt the steppe, dividing it into distinct segments; but horsemen could cross such barriers easily, so that steppe peoples could and did interact across the entire breadth of the Eurasian grassland throughout most of recorded history.
