We're Riding on a Caravan - An Adventure along the Silk Road. This is probably our all-time favorite Laurie Krebs book! Tag along with a family who make their living by traveling the Silk Road. Beautiful pictures, catchy rhyming text, and amazing end notes about the story of silk, the cities along the Silk Road, and a two-page map of the journey.
Picture book on the legend of silk
Non fiction. Thubron spent 8 months traveling the 2000 year old trade route known as "The Silk Road". This is his account of that time. One of his best.
