Denis and Francis find that many of the things Marco Polo described in China still exist.
"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." - Bill Moyers
Major funding for In the Footsteps of Marco Polo was provided by The Starr Foundation. Additional support was given by the Center for Cultural Interchange.
