An interesting account of the attempts by Europeans, particularly the English, Dutch and Jesuits to establish trading and religious footholds in Japan in the early 1600's - tales of shipwrecks, tropical disease, and culture clashes interwoven with the attempts of settlers to build trade and to enrich themselves.

Parts of the book are about William Adams, and his remarkable rise in Japan from imprisoned shipwreck victim to Samurai rank as personal adviser to the Shogun.
