In this second tome of Le Devisement du monde, Marco Polo travels across the north of Afghanistan and crosses China following the route of the caravans. The cities that dot the Xinjang and Gansu provinces are the traditional stops of what would later be called the Silk Road. On the other side of Wuwei, Marco Polo seems to have taken a more direct route around the Gobi desert to Xanadu, the Khan's summer palace to north of Peking. Despite geographical obstacles and innumerable perils, the Venitian voyager arrives at his destination—and becomes the first to travel so far into an immense and wondrous Asia.
