Young Adult • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Orphaned by Japan's feudal wars, Saru tells the tale of his life on the streets, his rescue of a Samurai lord and his wife, and their harrowing escape to the safety of a Buddhist temple far over the mountains. George Guidall reads with a measured care which captures Saru's structured society. This dispassionate technique makes the privation and danger in Saru's life even more vivid. It has the added advantage of giving the listener time to recognize unfamiliar names and terms of address. Guidall's relentless performance draws the listener closer and closer to Saru, the Old Priest, and the Samurai lord. L.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 94]
