Synopsis:

An insightful portrait of the thirteenth-century explorer, adventurer, and global traveler follows Marco Polo from his youth in Venice as the scion of a wealthy merchant family, to his journey to Asia and role in the court of Kublai Khan, to his return to Europe, his introduction of such Chinese innovations as gunpowder and pasta, and his influence on the history of his era. Reprint. 60,000 first printing.


Review:

"In his splendid MARCO POLO: FROM VENICE TO XANADU, the well-known biographer Laurence Bergreen offers not so much a conventional biography as the lively reconstruction of a supreme adventure."

Eric Ormsby, New York Sun, 11/07/2007

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 204 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. As the first European to travel extensively throughout Asia, Marco Polo was the earliest bridge between East and West. His famous journeys took him across the boundaries of the known world, along the dangerous Silk Road, and into the court of Kublai Kahn, where he won the trust of the most feared and reviled leader of his day. Polo introduced the cultural riches of China to Europe, spawning centuries of Western fascination with Asia. In this lively blend of history, biography, and travelogue, acclaimed author Laurence Bergreen separates myth from history, creating the most authoritative account yet of Polo s remarkable adventures. Exceptionally narrated and written with a discerning eye for detail, Marco Polo is as riveting as the life it describes. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9781400078806
