His love affair with a courtesan a woman who, would bear him the son for which he had always longed would form a tragedy so dramatic as to be immortalized in the stories of Madame Butterfly and Miss Saigon.

Review Text

En el amor y en la batalla se forja el alma de un samurái.

En 1858, Thomas Glover, un joven aventurero escocés, acepta un empleo de mercader en Japón. En los siguientes diez años amasa una gran fortuna, aprende las tradiciones de los samuráis y colabora en la destitución del Sogún. Sin embargo, tras el éxito se esconde un hombre que no es feliz. Su historia de amor con una cortesana quedaría inmortalizada en la famosa ópera Madama Butterfly.

Una moderna novela épica, un inolvidable viaje del espíritu, La Tierra Pura recrea la trayectoria de la auténtica ascensión y declive de la vida de Glover y describe una saga de cien años que culmina con la destrucción de Nagasaki en 1945.
