That sounds like an interesting book Ren Tanner. It sounds like it would be something having to do with Japan.. Is this correct? I remember back in the 70's when everyone was reading Shogun which was later done as a movie. ALso, the Last Samurai was another Epic of course. I think that it is always interesting to learn about cultures that are different than our own, and in this way we expand our horizons. It is defintely something to look into. I hope I am not wrong about the country of your book!!
