"It was the best-documented journey of its time, inspiring the imaginations
and ambitions of countless adventurers, including Christopher Columbus. Now
we, too, can follow in the footsteps of Marco Polo, with guides as vividly
exciting and engaging as Marco himself. With both their film and this book
Denis and Francis have recreated what Joseph Campbell would have applauded
as 'The Hero's Journey.' Come take it yourself and you'll never turn back."
