Language arts lesson

Marco Polo is known as a great explorer. Something interesting, though, is that Marco Polo was not the first to explore Asia, he went on only one journey, and he was not even the captain of the boat he went on. Why, then, is he considered to be such a great explorer? The answer is because he made of book of his experiences. This book made Marco Polo famous and inspired many other explorers, including Christopher Columbus.
