Adventures on the Ancient Silk Road

One of the most informative and attractive nonfiction books I have seen in a long time is Adventures on the Ancient Silk Road, written by Priscilla Galloway with Dawn Hunter. Aimed at ages 10 and up, the book takes the reader along on breathtaking adventures on the fabled Silk Road with Chinese Buddhist Xuanzang to India. Six hundred years later, Genghis Khan secures control of the Silk Road for Mongols while during the 13th century Marco Polo uses the road to introduce China to Europe. The photos, sidebars and maps bring the story of the Silk Road to life with amazingly vivid details. A great book to use both for readers who love information and as a valuable classroom resource. Adventures on the Ancient Silk Road, Priscilla Galloway with Dawn Hunter. Annick Press, ISBN 978-1-55451-198-3
