Marco Polo's own story of his journey to the Court of Kublai Khan, thrillingly retold for children of nine to twelve by the author of 'Douglas of Porcupine,' 'Two Children of Tyre,' and 'The Terrace.'
Here is not merely an account of travels and high adventure but also a story of character, of a man of honesty and courage. Seen through the eyes of Tonio, the young companion of Marco Polo, who is the hero of the story, the great Venetian traveler is a character to inspire boys and girls of today.
