Description from the publisher:
Cheng Ho, a servant boy of ten to the Ming Dynasty Emperor, Yung Lo, grew to be a giant of a man, seven feet tall with a voice like thunder. He became the most famous admiral of his time, visiting strange and dangerous places and travelling great distances. He fought pirates, settled disputes and brought back treasure and wild animals from Africa as tribute to his Emperor.
The stories of his great adventures in the South Seas will live on forever. And even to this day some say that he was Sindbad the Sailor.
