About the Book

A fascinating and accessible historical picture book about commerce, trade, and cultural exchange, perfect for classroom use and research.

Silk has long been considered a symbol of wealth and luxury. But thousands of years ago, the production of silk cloth was one of China's most prized secrets. So how did silk become one of the most sought-after materials in the world?

With lavish illustrations and a highly informative text, The Silk Route traces the early history of the silk trade--from the mulberry groves of China to the marketplace in Byzantium--and explores how two of the world's greatest empires were brought together, forever opening the channels of commerce between East and West.

A treasure through the years, this book is perfect for the classroom and independent book reports.
