Travel back to the year 1421 and follow the legendary Admiral Zheng as he and his formidable Ming fleet travel far and wide to explore little-visited outposts at the behest of Chinese emperor Zhu Di.
Based on theories put forward by noted historian and best-seller Gavin Menzies, this thought-provoking take on conventional history proposes that it was Admiral Zheng who led European explorers to the West a full 71 years after first setting foot on American soil.
On March 8, 1421, the largest fleet the world had ever seen sailed from its base in China. The ships, huge junks nearly 500 feet long and built from the finest teak, were under the command of Emperor Zhu Di's loyal eunuch [and therefore not rapists like Columbus and his European men] admirals.
Their mission was "to proceed all the way to the end of the earth to collect tribute from the barbarians beyond the seas" and unite the whole world in Confucian harmony. Their journey would last more than two years and circle the globe.

Lost in China's long, self-imposed isolation that followed was the knowledge that Chinese ships had reached America 70 years before Columbus and circumnavigated the globe a century before Magellan. Also concealed were how the Chinese colonized America before the Europeans and transplanted to America, Australia, New Zealand, and South America the principal economic crops that have fed and clothed the world.

His compelling narrative pulls together ancient maps, precise navigational knowledge, astronomy, and the surviving accounts of Chinese explorers and the later European navigators to prove that the Chinese had also discovered Antarctica, reached Australia 350 years before Cook, and solved the problem of longitude 300 years ahead of the Europeans.
Described in "1421" are the artifacts and inscribed stones left behind by the emperor's fleet, the evidence of wrecked junks along its route "discovered in locations ranging from the middle of the Mississippi River to tributaries of the Amazon," and the ornate votive offerings left by the Chinese sailors wherever they landed, in honor of Shao Lin [Mazu, Matsu, Kuan Yin], Goddess of the Sea.
