The Great Voyage of Zheng He

Bilingual in English & Traditional Chinese. Hard Cover.

Story of a famous Chinese Admiral that had a Huge Fleet that may have even reached America (not in this book).
  • Children will enjoy the oversize illustrations
  • Great book to introduce children to the Chinese history

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.

  • Authors present a 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 oversize 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.

  • Non-Chinese readers will be able to visualize the authentic Chinese view of the rise and fall of the Ming fleet.

  • New interests and discoveries may result from this epic that all ages will enjoy.

good history book February 11, 2008
Reviewer: Gary from Phoenix  
I bought this book because I want to learn more about the Chinese heroes (real people not legend).  The book is in English and Chinese both myself and my son can read it.

Beautiful artwork and enjoyable story February 11, 2008
Reviewer: MMBaillie from Undisclosed  
I was looking for a book to reinforce language studies that would be appropriate for my college age son.  He has been studying beginning Mandarin and I was very happy to find this Chinese Character/English bilingual book.  My son loves history and he said he was able to recognize many of the characters in the book.  I was pleased with the beautiful artwork and I enjoyed the story as well.
