Críticas:

Told with Stevensonian gusto ... A revelation Jane Gardam, Spectator Anyone who enjoyed Shogun ... will love this Lancashire Evening Post Samurai William is a great read and fairly romps along What's On A page-turner of a book... an accessible, well-crafted piece of popularised history. Allan Spence, The Scotsman Giles Milton has once again shown himself to be a master of historical narrative... a gripping tale of Jacobean derring-do, a fizzing, real-life, Boys' Own adventure underpinned by genuine scholarship. Katie Hickman, The Sunday Times Giles Milton again expertly navigating the eastern seas Economist Milton has brought the era to life, conveying nuances of character and the values of the time. The Sunday Times The thoroughness and intelligence of his research underpins the lively confidence with which he deploys it. The Times Literary Supplement Fascinating detail ... Milton is good at portraying eccentric characters and the Englishmen's shock at the periodic brutality of the Japanese. The Times Literary Supplement

Reseña del editor:

In 1611 an astonishing letter arrived at the the East India Trading Company in London after a tortuous seven-year journey. Englishman William Adams was one of only twenty-four survivors of a fleet of ships bound for Asia, and he had washed up in the forbidden land of Japan. The traders were even more amazed to learn that, rather than be horrified by this strange country, Adams had fallen in love with the barbaric splendour of Japan - and decided to settle. He had forged a close friendship with the ruthless Shogun, taken a Japanese wife and sired a new, mixed-race family. Adams' letter fired up the London merchants to plan a new expedition to the Far East, with designs to trade with the Japanese and use Adams' contacts there to forge new commercial links. SAMURAI WILLIAM brilliantly illuminates a world whose horizons were rapidly expanding eastwards.
