Description
How did Marco Polo manage to walk across all of Asia? Why did he become a favorite of fabled Mongol ruler Kublai Khan? Why was he not recognized on his return home?

Marco Polo decided to see for himself the mysterious lands of the East, and embarked on an expedition lasting 24 years. The account of his epic journey astounded people throughout Europe. Find out how Marco Polo braved bandits, sandstorms, mountains, pirates, and deadly diseases along the Silk Road and Spice Route. Discover how he became a spy for Kublai Khan, saw treasures beyond his dreams, brought riches home to Italy, and wrote one of the greatest travel books of all time.
