Editorial Review
The author considered the story of Marco Polo “one of the most romantic and interesting of mediaeval or of modern times,” and in this delightful little book, he sets out to recount the adventures of the intrepid explorer. Intended for young readers, Brooks’ well-chosen excerpts from Polo’s own diaries also work as a comprehensive and readable summary of Polo’s writings, interwoven with the author’s own pointed observations and commentary on the traveller’s tale. This charming replica of an 1897 edition, complete with the original illustrations, will amuse readers of history and biography, and anyone who enjoys a rollicking story well told. American journalist and newspaper editor NOAH BROOKS (1830–1903) was a contributor to Harper’s Magazine and the author of American Statesman and Washington in Lincoln’s Time.
