This is a book for those who dream of strange journeys into distant countries: for Marco Polo was a young traveller who, in the thirteenth century, saw with his own eyes, in Xanadu, that stately pleasure dome which Kublai Khan decreed and the poet Coleridge wrote of. He saw the Great Wall of China, and the Garden of Paradise. He travelled the deserts of Persia, saw Tibet, Burma and Sumatra. No one believed him, and, cast into prison, he wrote down what he had seen. A century later, Christopher Columbus read those words and was fired by them to go and search for that land of wealth-and found America instead. In fact no other Western traveller so much as set foot on those lands over which Marco Polo had travelled so freely, for China shut herself in and remained impenetrable for centuries to come. When at last her frontiers were opened again, he was found to have been a reliable witness and his stories were confirmed. Manuel Komroff has written and edited a number of books about China, and was responsible for the first English edition for over a hundred years of Marco Polo's travels. That book has become a classic, and of it he wrote: 'I dug up these old dry bones from a long neglected grove, put them together in an orderly fashion and tried to blow life into them.
