Product Info

In 1841, Japan had been closed to the outside world for 250 years, and everyone who tried to return to the country after leaving it could be executed. Still, he never gave up his dream of finding a strategy to return to Japan and see his mother again. There, Manjiro was treated like Captain Whitfield's son, and he began to feel as though Massachusetts was his second residence. So when the tiny fishing boat on which fourteen-year-old Manjiro was working was shipwrecked, he despaired of ever returning to his village. Watercolor illustrations bring to life the true story of a determined and resourceful young man whose intimate information of two cultures later led him to play an crucial function within the opening of Japan to Western trade and ideas. The captain of the American whaling ship that rescued Manjiro took a unique interest in him, inviting him to come reside in Massachusetts.
