Based in modern day Italy. It's about a boy who has come to Italy to wait for his father to come back from tracking the route of Marco Polo in the Gobi desert. The boy has a pet dog, which is a descendant of Marco Polo's dog, with whom he can converse.
A doctor friend ends up relating the journeys of Marco Polo to this boy in an exciting and engaging manner.
