The book is written on the basis of unique archival data base and illustrates the activities of the outstanding son of the Kazakh people, poet, scientist, educator, political and public figure Akhmet Baitursynov during his life time in the city of Orenburg. The book traces his path in the period of his formation as a person, when he was still a student of the Orenburg Russian-Kazakh School, and yet beginning teacher and a publisher of the first Kazakh newspaper. That was at the Soviet period when he immediately stood at the helm of the young Kazakh republic as a member of the first Kazakh government and people's commissar enlightenment of the KazUSSR.
