Marco Polo : dangers and visions

Image of item
Book

First North American edition.

"Marco Polo, once a traveler, then a soldier, sits inside a prison cell. Battered and feverish, he speaks of his journeys -- and takes his first steps into the pages of history. The son of a traveling merchant, Marco Polo spent his early years among the ports of Venice, Italy. As a young man, he headed eastward with his father and his uncle, toward the lands of the Mongol emperor Kublai Khan. Their journey from Europe into Asia, marked by risks, setbacks, and discoveries, transformed every person involved. It also led to one of the world's most studied, most debated travelogues. Marco Tabilio, an emerging talent of Italian cartooning, creates a graphic novel in the form of a puzzle and finds the coming-of-age tale within the legend of Marco Polo." -- Book jacket.
