The Mission of Friar William of Rubruck
William of Rubruck was a Franciscan friar who wrote the first great travel book about Asia. In 1253-55 he made the journey from the Holy Land to the court of the Great Khan Mongke at Qaraqorum in Mongolia and back again. His account is particularly vivid because he related to the individual people he met. This title offers translation of the text.
