In the Footsteps of Marco Polo
A Companion to the Public Television Film
In the Footsteps of Marco Polo by Denis Belliveau
Book DescriptionArdent 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.
