Summary (From the publisher):

Fifteen centuries before Marco Polo, Eudoxos of Kyzikos opened the first direct trading route to the East. Seeking wealth for his family's shipping concerns, he made a series of voyages across the Indian Ocean and along both coasts of Africa. His remarkable skills as navigator, geographer, fighter, and diplomat proved indispensable in dealing with the distrustful rulers, rapacious bandits, internecine wars, and strange beliefs he encountered in the unknown, uncharted lands beyond the Mediterranean. But he sought more in those lands than wealth; he hoped desperately for relief from the terrible affliction that forced his wife to desert him.
