Young samurai: the ring of earth by Bradford, Chris.
Review posted by Athul Rony of 7-A.
I loved this book because it is full of surprises. This is the story of a young samurai named Jack Fletcher. He was a gaijin, meaning a foreigner. The
daimya Akechi was forbidding gaijins from entering Japan. In this story Jack joins one of the ninja clans to study ninjutsu. Using his fighting skills he
is able to reach Nagasaki without the Akechi samurai’s being aware of it. In his journey he realises that all the ninjas are not bad and, likewise, all
samurais are not good.
It is an incredible adventure that you should read about.
