Review:

"A story that reads like fiction....[Schodt]is particularly well-qualified to discuss Japanese perspectives on MacDonald's story and has uncovered material hitherto untouched by writers on the subject. This is certainly the definitive work on Ranald MacDonald." --Jean Murray Cole, author of This Blessed Wilderness and Exile in the Wilderness: the biography of Chief Factor Archibald McDonald 1790-1853
