This book is a prime example of why I love to do the challenges for the GoodReads groups I'm in. I hadn't even known this book existed and would have never read it but it was a great book. A Newberry Honor book, Heart of a Samurai is based on the true account of a 14 year old Japanese boy who gets lost at sea on a small fishing boat. The story takes place in the mid 1800's. After washing up on a deserted island he and is 4 companions are rescued by the feared western barbarians on their whaling vessel. Then his adventures truly begin. A fantastic book that deals with the themes of family, courage, prejudice, and achieving one's dreams.
Nice book on ecology and caring about your environment for children. Artwork is well done, and it doesn't get boring when you've read it a few dozen times.
