Robert Skimin’s historical novel, Chikara, is an epic family drama of the two great countries, America and Japan.

These historical events shape the characters’ dreams and ambitions, their lives and their spirit.
Sataro of the House of Hoshi, driven by his ancient samurai blood, has left his beloved Japan to seek his dream of power in America. His descendants will suffer the aftermath of his vision and as they too try to forge their own newer dream.
This a story that pays tribute to the Japanese Americans who persevered in the face of racism and established their cultural communities with hard work, honour and patience. Highly recommended historical reading!
