Description
 
Giles Milton (au). The true story behind James Clavell’s best-selling “Shogun,” “Samurai William” is the incredible tale of a man who tried to bridge 2 very different cultures during one of the earliest & most fascinating encounters between East & West. In 1611, London’s E. India Co. received a startling letter from Japan, written by a marooned English mariner named William Adams. He had taken a Japanese name, risen to the highest levels in the ruling shogun’s court, & was now offering his services as adviser & interpreter. For more than a decade, the English, helped by Adams, attempted trade with the shogun. Faced with the difficulties of communicating, & hounded by Jesuit monks & Dutch assassins, they eventually found themselves in a battle for their lives. Illus.
