"An engaging, provocative, and long-awaited sequel to Autumn Lightning... Dave Lowry is a latter-day Lafcadio Hearn with a bokuto!"--Karl Friday, author of Samurai, Warfare and the State in Early Medieval Japan and co-author of Legacies of the Sword: The Kashima-Shinryu and Samurai Martial Culture
"Like fine wine, good writing only gets better with aging. Likewise, Dave Lowrys Persimmon Wind has garnered a richer, more complex taste over the years since its first publication. And like a good vintner, Diane Skoss has nurtured and reedited this wonderful book for a new generation of serious, dedicated budoka to enjoy. May they find even more textual complexity, sweetness and bittersweet wonder as I did when I first read the book!"--Wayne Muromoto, editor, Furyu: the Budo Magazine
In Persimmon Wind, nature and culture form an unbroken unity. Dave Lowry has managed to bypass the oppressive grey of urban Japan and the glitz of neon and technology. It is as if he found a single meandering thread of purity, and this, alone he followed. Village festivals, tea ceremony, even martial arts are part of a single organic unity, not hobbies used to either pass the time or get one in touch with something lost. It is not all of Japan, by any stretch of the imagination. But it is what makes it Japan."--Ellis Amdur, author ofDueling with O-sensei and Old School: Essays on Japanese Martial Traditions
