The Khan of Persia's favorite wife has died, and Kublai Khan, emperor of all China, decrees that 17-year-old Princess Kokachin shall replace her. Excited to have been chosen, but scared of such a long journey to a foreign land, the princess feels safe knowing that her escort to Persia will be the great Venetian traveler, Marco Polo.

Sheila recreate evocative illustrations re-create a fascinating time when the world was just beginning to be explored.
