HOW TO LIVE LIKE...
A SAMURAI WARRIOR
How to Live Like series, each of which takes you on a journey into the past, in the company of a lively and engaging young narrator.
In A Samurai Warrior, Takeshi has been living in a magnificent samurai castle since the age of five, where he has been training to become one of the daimyo’s guard. He learns to fire arrows at the gallop, to spar with katana (the samurai sword of choice), to fight with war fans and his bare hands, and to follow the way of the warrior – until the great day comes when he witnesses the mightiest single combat ever.
