Summary
"In 1871, five young girls were sent by the Japanese government to the United States. Their mission: learn Western ways and return to help nurture a new generation of enlightened men to lead Japan."--Provided by publisher
Summary
In the years after 1853, when Japan opened its harbors to trade with the U.S., the Japanese government realized that its citizens would need to understand Western culture as it pursued commerce with the rest of the world. Since they viewed women as essential to the preparation of future leaders, they decided to send some girls to the U.S. so they could learn American ways and return to Japan as educators. Daughters of the Samurai presents complete biographies of three of the five girls who were chosen, tracing their foreign experiences and following their adult lives in Japan. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
