Tsuda was one of the first girls sent to America by Japan's Meiji government to become models of education and cultivation. She spent 11 years with the Lanman family before returning to her native land in 1882 to discover herself overly educated in a repressive environment. Tsuda returned to the US, attended Bryn Mawr college, and eventually founded Tsuda College in Japan to offer higher education to women there. These selections from Tsuda's letters to Mrs. Lanman, spanning the years 1882 to 1911, offer a bicultural perspective of Japan during its crucial modernization period. No index or bibliography. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
