In nineteenth-century Japan, strict isolationist laws forbade citizens who left the country from returning. When fourteen-year-old Manjiro and four other fishermen were stranded on a remote island after a storm and rescued six months later, they could not go home. Here is the incredible story of how Manjiro became the first Japanese to set foot in America and took part in opening Japan to foreign trade. Photographs and prints. Author’s note. Bibliography.
