Stories From The Silk Road - Central Asia
The Spirit of the Silk Road is your guide as you journey through this book from Chang-an to Samarkand, following one of the arterial caravan routes of the silk traders. As you travel across treacherous deserts and through lonely mountain passes, you will learn about the importance of silk as a commodity, see some of the distinctive customs of the peoples of Central Asia, and join in many storytelling sessions at starlit oases and campfires.
Look - there are the famous turquoise domes of the mosques. There is the great market, where the silks and spices are traded. And what crowds of people there are in the streets! Retold by: Cherry Gilchrist
