Eleven-year-old Mark''s anthropologist father has disappeared into the Gobi desert while tracing Marco Polo''s ancient route from Venice to China. When Mark and his mother travel to Venice to gather information about Mark''s missing dad, Mark meets Doc Hornaday, an old family friend and masterful spinner of historical tales. As Doc describes Marco Polo''s adventures--sailing through pirate waters to where the desert begins, following the sunrise and the way of the Greek wind, crossing the broad plains and sand wastes where troves of bandits away--Mark finds himself falling under the spell of the story that has transfixed the world for centuries. Newbery Honor winner Alan Armstrong''s third novel, backed by extensive research, brings to life Marco''s remarkable journey from Venice to China, where he spent seventeen years in the court of the mighty Kublai Khan.
