Abstract:

"Orphaned at the age of thirteen, Hikotaro resigns himself to a life at sea. But when the merchant vessel he sails on is caught in a violent storm, he is taken to San Francisco by American rescuers. Made an outcast by the shogunate policy forbidding reentry to Japanese who have been abroad, Hikotaro accepts his new country with trepidation and hope. Still, he dreams of returning to his native land. Yet when he finally does, he realizes that there is now no place he can call home. Based on real characters and real events, Storm Rider is a story of a man lost between two cultures."--Jacket.
