Master writer Margi Preus treats readers to an amazing adventure in 1853 Japan. This lyric novel follows Yoshi, a Japanese boy who dreams of becoming a samurai. Unfortunately, as part of the serving class, Yoshi can never become a warrior. He is taken up by Manjiro, the protagonist of Preus s "Heart of a Samurai," and becomes his servant and secret watchdog. Meanwhile, Commodore Matthew Perry and his USS "Susquehanna "squadron of steamships arrive in Edo Bay demanding that Japan open its ports to foreign trade. Aboard the commodore s flagship is Jack, a cabin boy who becomes separated from his American companions. He and Yoshi set out on a grand adventure to return Jack to his ship before he is discovered by the shogun s samurai.
