Biography: Marco Polo - Journey to the East
Marco Polo had a strong case of wanderlust; when he set out from his Venetian home to explore the East, he did not return for 20 years. This video chronicles the travels of the legendary adventurer, who explored the exotic lands of the Middle and Far East. With readings from his famous book, The Travels of Marco Polo, written while imprisoned at the end of the 13th century, the adventurer's quest to see the world unfolds. His accounts, such as his stay in the court of the Emperor Kublai Khan in Mongolia, fired the imagination of Europeans, and inspired the poetry of the English author Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The film shows why no world traveler has been more influential than the intrepid Marco Polo. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
