Marco Polo has fascinated readers since his ‘Travels’ first appeared for European readers in the 13th century. Many revisions and additions were made to the ‘Travels’ over Marco’s life time, the original manuscript unfortunately did not survive. Using 19th and 20th century Chinese scholars Bergreen is able to verify many of facts and events that Marco Polo claimed to have witnessed. A fascinating account that is sure to interest history and travel buffs alike.
