In the Footsteps of Marco Polo by Denis Belliveau

Book Description

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 twenty countries over two years; in jeeps, trains and rickshaws; astride horses and camels; and on foot. The authors artfully weave their own adventures encountering corrupt Uzbek warlords, rifle-wielding Afghanis, and Tibetan monks with Marco Polo's descriptions and experiences-as fresh and relevant today as when he first narrated it. Richly illustrated with Belliveau's stunning color photographs, this compelling book documents two journeys of a lifetime, undertaken centuries apart yet joined by unbreakable bonds of shared experience.
