No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Yurts shiver in the breeze. A magic fountain appears, contructed by a Parisian far from home. Buddhist monks debate with Franciscans about the nature of Man, God, and life on Earth. All this and more appears in Meet the Khan, an ambitious combination of three men's 13th century journals. Friar John meets Kuyuk Khan; Friar William meets Mongke Khan; and Marco Polo meets and serves Kublai Khan. The reader enters Karakorum, Xanadu, and travels thousands of miles with his hardy European travelers. Get ready for the ride (and walk) of your life!
