Did you know that 85 years before Columbus discovered America, Chinese ships longer than a football field sailed thousands of miles through unknown oceans and visited over 30 nations? Adventures of the Treasure Fleet is the amazing story of these seven epic voyages and their larger-than-life commander, Admiral Zheng He. It's true!

Beginning in 1405, Admiral Zheng He led more than 300 gigantic, brightly-painted ships across the South China Sea to the Indian Ocean and all in the approach towards the distant coast of Africa. At each port, Chinese goods were traded for pearls, precious stones, herbs and medicines which had been presented as tribute to China's powerful emperor when the ships' returned home. The admiral and his crew battled pirates and raging storms, and had been amazed by the individuals and methods of life in distant lands.
