Description

Minamoto Yoshitsune should not have been a samurai. But his story is legend in this real-life saga. This epic warrior tale reads like a novel, but this is the true story of the greatest samurai in Japanese history. When Yoshitsune was just a baby, his father went to war with a rival samurai family-and lost. His father was killed, his mother captured, and his surviving half-brother banished. Yoshitsune was sent away to live in a monastery. Skinny, small, and unskilled in the warrior arts, he nevertheless escaped and learned the ways of the samurai. When the time came for the Minamoto clan to rise up against their enemies, Yoshitsune answered the call. His daring feats and impossible bravery earned him immortality.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Brian Nishii chronicles the life of samurai warrior Minamoto Yoshitsune in this fast-paced adventure story filled with details about weaponry and warfare in twelfth-century Japan. Nishii captures the intensity of Yoshitsune's experiences in battle through fervent dialogue that brings the historical figure to life. An intricate timeline included in the narration gives the listener a better understanding of the historical periods of Japan as compared to the rest of the world, while a glossary provides a glimpse of the language. Listeners will be captivated by this work, which reveals the way samurai warriors lived and died during this important period in Japanese history. M.D. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
