Ardent explorers and adventurers Denis Belliveau and Francis O'Donnell followed Marco Polo's route from beginning to end-starting in Venice and trekking through Central Asia, Afghanistan, and ultimately China-traveling 33,000 miles through 20 countries over two years; in jeeps, trains and rickshaws; astride horses and camel; and on foot. The authors artfully weave their own adventures with Marco Polo's descriptions and experiences. Richly illustrated with Belliveau's award-winning color photography, this compelling book documents two journeys of a lifetime, undertaken centuries apart, yet joined by unbreakable bonds of shared experience.
