Commodore Perry in the Land of the Shogun
Author: Rhoda Blumberg
A Newbery Honor Book from acclaimed author Rhoda Blumberg
For centuries, Japan had isolated itself so completely from the outside world that few of its people even knew that America existed. But everything began to change in 1853 when American Commodore Perry and his troops sailed to the Land of the Rising Sun, bringing with them a new way of life.
In this Newbery Honor Book, Rhoda Blumberg, known for her ability to make significant historical events accessible to young readers, brings to life the remarkable proceedings that led to the opening of Japan. Now available in paperback for the first time.
