Description

A samurai who cannot get work because of his reputation for being the bearer of bad luck agrees, in spite of his misgivings, to defend a kingdom from a terrible dragon. . . . A lazy young man, rejected by his family and desperate to restore his good name by learning the skills of a samurai, becomes the servant of a wise teacher who doesn’t speak to him for three years. . . . A brave girl goes against tradition, learns the ways of the samurai, and becomes famous for her courage and ferocity in battle. . . . In vivid stories packed with action and humor, Eric A. Kimmel brings to life the fiercely honorable “knights of old Japan.”
