EBook Description

I, along with my youngest, just finished reading this excellent story based on a true account of Japanese fishermen who were shipwrecked in the mid 1800's, rescued by an American whaling ship and tried to get back to Japan. Born in the Year of Courage PDF EBook However, because Japan at the time was entirely closed to the outside world, anyone who ever left the country for any reason, was never allowed to return, on penalty of death. This remarkable story of "Manjiro" is fascinating in its scope. Read in conjunction with Commodore Perry in the Land of the Shogun brings multiple dimensions to the story and the history of Japan. This is a book specifically written for children, junior high level, but definitely worth a quick read for adults interested in the story. Highly recommended. Like this book?
