DIARY OF A PRINCESS : A TALE
FROM MARCO POLO'S TRAVELS
London : Frances Lincoln,
Polo was an Italian explorer who lived a long, long time ago. Back
in 1271, Marco Polo was one of the first Europeans to travel the Silk Road
to China. When he arrived, he struck up a friendship with the ruler
of China and stayed for seventeen years! But he longed to return
to Italy. When word came that Khan Arghun of Persia wished to have
a new wife, Marco Polo jumped at the chance to deliver Kokachin to Persia.
Remember, in those days, there were no airplanes, or cars, or even roads.
Marco Polo set out by sea to deliver Kokachin to her new husband.
Can you believe the trip took two years!! Find out what it might
have been like in Diary of a Princess.
