For a brave and noble samurai warrior like Sadayori, this confrontation between East and west means making a choice between the old and new, and fighting to the death for it. For a daring seaman like Jinsuke, it means entering the camp of the intruders to learn their ways, and being torn between the beautiful Japanese girl he has loved and left and the American woman he cannot resist. Will combine shipping on more than one book. .
