This teaching novel by archaeologist Peter Bleed demonstrates the complexities of contemporary collecting of archaeological antiques and delves into the world of 14th century Japan. Dr. Eric Mallow, a serious gun collector, complicates his life by acquiring a pair of Japanese swords at a gun show. He has no idea one of the swords was the personal weapon of a 14th century patriot, or that the other carries a blood-thirsty reputation as the "Son Killer." Various attempts to get them back complicate his life, from a Japanese politician wants the swords to cement his control over a religious cult to the leader of a Tokyo crime syndicate. National Treasure treats 600 years of history and societies that are worlds apart with accuracy and cultural detail. The book was a Finalist, 2001 Independent Book Publishers Awards, Multicultural Fiction.

From the Back Cover:

"I enjoyed every page of this story that weaves together the actions of Japanese characters and Americans who have tried to understand them and their fabulous swords." Col. Dean S. Hartley, r., USMC (ret), President Emeritus, Japanese Sword Society of the United States

"An absorbing tale . . .by an internationally recognized scholar in Japanese archaeology and the study of antique collecting . . .with threads that wind around two fine Japanese swords. It begins in ancient Japan and ends in the modern world of international intrigue in business and politics ... engaging style." Douglas D. Scott and Melissa Connor, authors, "They Died With Custer."

A marvelous job off conveying cultural viewpoints . . A fascinating and artfully clever story. The best "read"I've enjoyed in years! Thomas Theissen, Archaeologist and Military Historian, US National Park Service
