Summary
Years ago, Bennosuke's father, the renowned warrior Munisai, abandoned his home for the battlefield. Although his uncle (and guardian), the monk Dorinbo, nudges Bennosuke towards the religious life, the 13-year-old wants nothing more than to follow in his father's footsteps. When Munisai returns, Bennosuke learns the terrible truth behind his father's departure -- and strengthens his resolve to become a true samurai. Based on the life of 17th-century warrior-poet Musashi Miyamoto, whose achievements include creating the two-bladed sword technique of kenjutsu and authoring The Book of the Five Rings, this gripping biographical novel skillfully evokes a time, place, and way of life that should appeal to fans of historical fiction set in feudal Japan. - Description by Gillian Speace
