Minamoto Yishune, born into a powerful samurai family, barely survives his violent childhood when his family is torn apart by a war of his fatherís making. The new ruling family sends him away to a monastery to reduce Minamoto as a possible threat to their power. Instead, Minamoto becomes one of the most daring and heroic samurais in Japanese history, executing unbelievable feats of bravery. This is the stuff of legends. (Florida Teens Read (FTR) 2017-2018)
