Intertwining tales of the masters with reflections on his own apprenticeship in the samurais arts, he reveals in their time-honored methods a way of life with profound relevance for modern times.This is the story of a life balanced between two cultures, of a boy who adapted every aspect of his life to the tradition-bound way of the sword, and who in the end became an American samurai.The year was 1968, and while all his adolescent friends were awakening to the possibilities inherent in the dictum Do your own thing, Lowry was conforming to the demands of an age-old school of martial arts.

What began as a Japanese school of swordsmanship in the 1560s became a rite of passage for a boy in St. Louis in the 1960s.
