Cambaluc, Lhassa, Manzi, Cathay, Camadi, Tabriz--strange names and strange places hold as much fascination for the reader of today as they held for the men of the thirteenth century who read and marveled at the accounts of John of Plano Carpini, William of Rubruquis and Marco Polo. From the works of these men and other travelers of that period, the authors have made a story which brings all the material together into a thrilling book. ...You can follow these travelers on bright colored maps and can see many pictures of the cities they saw. Mr. Siegel has traveled through these countries so that his pictures have not only color and spirit but are based on an actual knowledge of those regions.
