Samurai: Japan's noble servant-warriors

Samurai: Japan's noble servant-warriors

Hoena, B. A., author; Orban, Janos, illustrator

Samurai warriors are often thought of as stoic loners who wandered the land helping poor villagers fight against their oppressors. However, although a few Samurai worked alone, most of them considered it dishonourable. These highly-skilled warriors usually served a noble lord, and they fought fiercely to protect their master's lands. Dynamic illustrations and fascinating tales of famous Samurai teach readers what life was like as a noble servant-warrior in feudal Japan
