Demian's Thoughts: This book bears a certain resemblance to Sword of the Samurai both in its mission (to retrieve a weapon of historical significance) and in the way it forces the reader to choose an item to take along before beginning the adventure. The portion of history covered by the book is perhaps a bit familiar (at least to survivors of the American public school system), and the facts presented don't cover much new ground, but this is made up for by good writing and a few effective moments of humor.
