The Travels of Marco Polo by Marco Polo Read by Walter Covell. Take a fascinating journey through strange and exotic countries. Marco Polo (1254-1324), is probably the most famous Westerner who traveled on the Silk Road. With his 24-year journey through Asia he surpassed all other travelers in his determination, his writing, and his influence. He reached further than any of his predecessors, beyond Mongolia to China. He became a confidant of Kublai Khan (1214-1294). He traveled the whole of China and returned to tell the tale, which became one of the world's greatest travelogues.

    " I am glad I read this book written over 700 years ago even though I did do a lot of skim reading. "

    " listened to this on audio. i read it once a long time ago too and found it boring to read but listening to all the descriptions of these long gone places was so enjoyable. "

    " A little archaic prose wise, but really historically fascinating. Marco Polo was considered the most traveled man of his time (before the discovery of the new world), so there's all these fantastical descriptions of animals and places people had never seen before and stuff.A good companion book for Invisible Cities...yes, I took "recreating the classics" with Marguerite Feitlowitz. "

    " One of the first accounts of travelling to the Far East and of what Polo found there, The Travels are often repetitive and it is questionable how much of the account is embellished. Yet, Polo's account shaped European perceptions of China and it remains a useful window into how Europe related to the rest of the world during the Middle Ages. "
