Marco Polo was seventeen when he set out for China . . . and
forty-one when he came back! More than seven hundred years ago,
Marco Polo traveled from the medieval city of Venice to the fabled
kingdom of the great Kublai Khan, seeing new sights and riches that
no Westerner had ever before witnessed. But did Marco Polo
experience the things he wrote about . . . or was it all made-up?
Young readers are presented with the facts in this entertaining,
highly readable "Who Was" . . . ? biography with
black-and-white artwork by John O?Brien.
