MARKO BOOK CLUB // SILK ROADS by PETER FRANKOPAN // REVIEW #4

July 13, 2020

SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER: http://eepurl.com/gdR76X . This month we are reading Silk Roads: A New History of the World by Peter Frankopan. Last month I traveled to Uzbekistan to film a new travel vlog series for Vagabrothers, and this book was a huge inspiration for our trip. Here’s episode 1 of that series:

If you’re watching the vlogs from Uzbekistan, this book will be the perfect companion for those who want a deeper dive into the history of the great Silk Road Cities like Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, and Tashkent, and the many soldiers, merchants and emperors who passed through – from Marco Polo to Alexander the Great, and Genghis Khan to Timurlane.
