The Great Voyages of Zheng He
   
Author: Song Nan Zhang & Hao Yu Zhang
Illustrator: Song Nan Zhang
Country/Culture: China
Language: English
Type of Product: Hardcover Book
Item Number: E312W
Retail Price: $16.95
ISBN Number: 1572270888
Description: Originally designed as a mission to collect tribute from neighboring countries, China’s massive naval fleet in the early 15th century stunned the world with its daring exploration, immense wealth, and military might. The unprecedented ambition of one of the world’s oldest civilizations has now come full circle and regained global attention.

On the 600th anniversary of its virgin voyage, nothing is more celebratory than recalling the legendary life of Zheng He, the commander of that spectacular maritime parade. The authors resurrect the character with their faithful portrayal of Zheng He as a loyal and devoted public servant together with having an innate ability to lead and influence. The text overflows with emotions that are complemented by oversized illustrations lavishly depicting the magnitude of this historical enterprise. One can easily become as engrossed in the paintings as one does in the fast-moving events of the story.

Through an open-ended treatment of a far-reaching Chinese connection in the world, non-Chinese readers will be able to visualize the authentic Chinese view of the rise and fall of the Ming fleet. Consequently, new interests and discoveries may catapult from this epic that all ages will enjoy.
