Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 156852238X, Hardcover)One of a series of four titles by this internationally acclaimed photographer. We feel that these are among the most beautiful travel books we have seen. In addition to his gifts as a photographer Chenevire has advanced university degrees in ancient and modern languages. This training has allowed him to enter into the spirit of different cultures and adds a depth of understanding to his written commentaries that accompany the photographs.
In Travels in the Orient: In the Footsteps of Marco Polo Chenevire recreates the journey of the celebrated Venetian traveler, who trekked eastward across the continent of Asia before arriving at the court of the Emperor Kubla Khan. Although centuries have passed away, most of the marvels that Marco Polo described still remain, magnificent testaments to the multiple, diverse ways that humanity leaves its imprint upon the world.
