In this translated collection of Lone Wolf and Cub, we get to read 11 wonderful stories. The first, “White Path Between the Rivers,” tells the origin story of Ogami Ittō. A Samurai who was once the trusted Executioner of the Shogun, but through a set up and betrayed by another family, causing his family to be killed, becomes a Ronin, traveling Japan with his three year old son, Daigorō. Together, they seek revenge on the family that disgraced them and to reestablish his Clan.

Lone Wolf and Cub is a well known series known for not only telling wonderful stories but also being very faithful to the depiction of Edo Period Japan. This is maintained in this translation and reissue. Not all words are translated to better keep the feel and a glossary is at the back of the book. It also gives historical snippets where appropriate to help give context to the story.
