Adventures of the Treasure Fleet is the amazing story of seven epic voyages and its larger-than-life commander, Admiral Zheng He. He led more than 300 gigantic, brightly painted ships across the South China Sea, to the Indian Ocean and all the way to the distant coast of Africa. They were amazed by the palaces, temples and the ways of people in distant lands. They befriended kings, charted unknown oceans and were awestruck by Africa's exotic animals. At each port, China's best porcelains and silks were traded for pearls, precious stones, herbs and medicines. They brought treasures from dignitaries and faraway lands to pay tribute to China's powerful emperor.
