Read full description of the books:
A graphic novel version of the life of legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi.
This is a graphic novel version of the life of Miyamoto Musashi, the legendary samurai known throughout the world as a master swordsman, spiritual seeker, and author of the classic" Book of Five Rings." Acclaimed manga creator Sean Michael Wilson has created both a vivid account of a fascinating period in feudal Japan and a portrait of a courageous, iconoclastic samurai who wrestled with philosophical and spiritual ideas that are as relevant today as they were in his time. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was about mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess--and it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in "Book of Five Rings." This graphic novel is based on "The Lone Samurai," the meticulously researched biography of Musashi by William Scott Wilson, renowned translator and expert on samuari history.
