Long Description
Was Marco Polo the world's greatest explorer -- or the world's greatest liar? Newbery Medalist Russell Freedman turns his eagle eye on the enigmatic Marco Polo in his most exciting biography yet.

He claimed to have seen rocks burn, bandits command sandstorms, lions tamed with a look, and sorcerers charm sharks while divers gathered pearls on the ocean floor. Marco Polo shook Europe with descriptions of the world he'd seen on his epic journey to the court of Kublai Khan.

But was Marco Polo the world's most accomplished explorer? Had he really seen the "Roof of the World" in Central Asia, and the "City of Heaven" in far-off China? Or was he a charlatan who saw nothing more than the conjurings of his inventive mind? Join Russell Freedman as he tackles a centuries-old mystery.

We upgraded the database quite a bit. We are doing a better job of locating data around the web and for the most part. We have added links from one product to similar products to help you find what you are looking for.

So one thing you will see is that we have more links on the site and more images. We have improved our searching functions to give you more options.

Over the next few days we will be adding pricing information when we can get it for any given product.

We have also started linking more agressivly to Amazon. This is because people keep coming to the site trying to buy products. At first we were all about data with little interest in selling but since people are often trying to buy, we want to make it easier and besides, we make a couple bucks in the process.

We don't want to get in the way of the original goal of providing product and company data, but we want to provide you with as much other information as possible at the same time.
