The Silk Road
Explore the World's Most Famous Trade Route
The Silk Road connected China to the Mediterranean sea for centuries over a distance of more than 7,000 miles. Trade and travel along this route influenced culture, politics, and economies. This book introduces young readers to its story and collects facts, mini-biographies of people like Marco Polo or Genghis Khan, and information about ordinary life to make history come alive in multiple dimensions. Instructions for projects, such as how to make a travel journal, a road map, or an abacus, further engage young readers. This book is only one in Nomad’s Build It Yourself series. For ages nine to twelve.
