Resumen:

Adventures On The Ancient Silk Road : A gripping account of three extraordinary explorers who changed history. For two thousand years, traders traveled many routes across the exotic lands of the Silk Road. By sea, through deserts, and over terrifying mountain passes, they visited throbbing marketplaces, fought off bandits, suffered extreme hunger and thirst, and risked the brutal elements - all in the name of new ways to exchange goods and ideas. This book presents three adventurous men who braved the journey, affecting change that can still be felt today. Xuanzang: A 7th-century pilgrim from China, whose search for Buddhist scriptures changed the course of two great nations. Genghis Khan: A Mongolian warrior and conqueror who, 500 years later, established the world's greatest empire. Marco Polo: A 13th-century merchant from Venice who traveled to the court of the Chinese emperor, allowing Europeans to see beyond their own borders.
