Description - Samurai William by Giles Milton

With all the adventure, derring-do, and bloodcurdling battle scenes of his earlier book, Nathaniel s Nutmeg , acclaimed historian Giles Milton dazzles readers with the true story of William Adams the first Englishman to set foot in Japan (and the inspiration for James Clavell s bestselling novel Shogun). Beginning with Adams s startling letter to the East India Company in 1611 more than a decade after he d arrived in Japan Samurai William chronicles the first foray by the Westinto that mysterious closed-off land. Drawing upon the journals and letters of Adams as well as the other Englishmen who came looking for him, Samurai William presents a unique glimpse of Japan before it once again closed itself off from the worldfor another two hundred years."
