Overview
In turbulent sixteenth-century Japan, orphaned Taro is taken in by a general serving the great warlord Takeda Shingen and grows up to become a samurai fighting for the enemies of his dead family. An ALA Notable Book. Reissue.

Publishers Description
When the powerful Lord Takeda's soldiers sweep across the countryside, killing and plundering, they spare the boy Taro's life and take him along with them. Taro becomes a servant in the household of the noble Lord Akiyama, where he meets Togan, a cook, who teaches Taro and makes his new life bearable. But when Togan is murdered, Taro's life takes a new direction: He will become a samurai, and redeem the family legacy that has been stolen from him.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great tale for all ages  Mar 2, 2007
At first I was ambiguous on how the story was starting out but then everything began to unfold, and I was drawn into to the story, I saw myself not being able to put the book down. The reading level is very simple, but the imagery was fantastic. But in all and all It's a great story for all ages with a great message that even us as adults seem to forget.
 
The Samurai's Tale  Nov 8, 2006
I think this was a ok book. For a 12-year old, we had to read it in class. It was sort of hard to understand, but still made sense. At first it was boring but got better during the end. It is about a boy named Taro. He is a samurai's son, until his dad gets killed by the lord's soldiers. They spare Taro's life, and let him live and work in the castle. He goes from different ranks, until he finally becomes a samurai just like his dad.
 
How this book influenced my life  Aug 15, 2006
This book that influenced my life A Samurais tale by Eric G. Haugaard, addresses the Habbit of mind Intellectual Curiosity because I've always wondered what life was like back in the fuedal age of japan as seen through the eyes of a Samurai. This book tells the story of how a young boy,Murikami whos father(a samurai)killed in battle is given a life as a peasent, but later in the book he gains the rank of samurai.I recomend this book to people who like to know about history and japan
 
A very good book  Jan 13, 2006
This book was an outstanding book for teenagers and was written by a wonderful author too. This book is about a boy who was born in an era where Lord Takeda's troops were conquering Japan. When Lord Takeda's army hit this boy's, (Taro), village his mother was killed but he was spared and raised. When time passes Taro gets older and wiser as he increases his rank in the world he has lived through and progresses throughout life. At first Taro starts out as a kitchen worker, the lowest rank in the village, he was then moved up as a horse keeper and now a messenger but then Taro was soon drafted to war as a rice manager "O master of rice".(pg.99) Then a very mysterious twist comes in the end which is very mind catching. I could not put down this book for a second.

The main character Taro is a very eager boy who always wants to strive to get to the top and the author did a very good description of this and the book. The author went into great detail and you can almost feel that you were experiencing Taro's adventures yourself. I could not even think about putting down this book the way the author wrote it.
This book is also most likely for ages 12+ because this book is about a boy's life journey.

Overall I gave this book a 4 star rating because I was an overall good book except it did not seem correctly put in the way the author organized the book.
