The author analyzes the travel text by Michael Donley, Marco Polo’s Isle. Having established that certain characteristics make the text paraethnographic, the author reaches for the concepts of salvage ethnography, since Donley’s text attempts to textually document a vanishing way of life, and Fabian’s concept of denial of coevalness, subsumed in Donley’s thought: “Not [disembarking] into some grim, nondescript port, but straight into history” (Donley 2005:14).
