"Marco Goes to China" tells of Polo's life and his 23-year adventure exploring the Far East. With a tale just as colorful as Genghis before him, Marco is honored and welcomed by Genghis's grandson Kublai Kahn and the rest is history. The open-minded Mongolian emperor had Marco ask the Pope to send 100 missionaries to teach his empire of the man he called Jesus. East met west soon after. --
