Spanning from Roman times until the Age of Exploration, this noteworthy route helped spread different forms of technology, various cultural traditions, and even academic theories across two continents and beyond. The merchants, conquerors, pilgrims, and diplomats who set out on the fabled route in search of wealth, power, and knowledgeincluding Marco Polo himselfare also documented, illustrating the vast deserts, towering mountain peaks, warring tribes, and marauding bandits they endured. Through entertaining activities that use everyday materials, this guide enables children to re-create the clothes and foods of the nomadic tribes and city dwellers who made their homes along the historical Silk Road. Illuminating a mysterious and more obscure part of the world, this narrative celebrates the Silk Roads important role in the development of human civilization.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
