Impossible dreams can come true. Yoshi is a poor orphan who only wanted to be a Samurai warrior, but in 19th century Japanese society you had to be born into a family of warriors. A chance encounter with a stranger and the arrival of Commodore Perry’s “Black Ships” from the West changed his life and Japanese society in ways they could never have imagined. Follow Yoshi’s adventures during this historical time in American and Japanese relations.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award Program, 2017)
