Who was Marco Polo? Did he really travel to China or was he a man of a million lies? Born into a family of adventurers, Marco joined his father and headed to Asia. There they met the Great Khan of the Mongols. Marco learned many languages and insisted even on his death bed that he made it as far as China. In fact he describes living seventeen years in eastern China. This is a beautiful book, almost a mystery story, complete with maps, manuscript pages and paintings. Even the color of the pages suggest a sense of history and something almost exotic. 64 pages
