Samurai Rising, by Pamela S. Turner

ISBN-13: 9781580895842
Publisher: Charlesbridge


A samurai fights for honour and survival in a real-life Game of Thrones.

Stirring narrative nonfiction recounts the rise of Minamoto Yoshitsune from seemingly doomed infant to immortal warrior-hero (and one of the most famous samurai in Japanese history). Acclaimed author Pamela S. Turner delivers all the drama, romance, and tragedy of the original story–with delightfully dry wit and a healthy dose of modern perspective. Gorgeous ink paintings by celebrated graphic-novelist Gareth Hinds complete this irresistible package.
