Gamô - The Struggle Begins; The Ômi Gamô 1 (940-1557).

Hi there,
My name is Terje Solum, and I am the author of the Saga of the Samurai series. For more than 25 years I have studied and researched Japanese history. Travelled extensively throughout the Japanese Islands and taken thousands of photos and collected thousands of books related to the Middle Ages of Japan - specializing on the Sengoku Jidai (1467-1615). 

In this, the first volume of two on the Gamô clan from Ômi province, we will trace the family’s origin, and follow the clan and its members through the turbulent centuries leading up to 1557.
600 years of enticing history will be told. Along with the Gamô there will also be lot of information on many other families from Ômi, like the Asai, Sasaki, Rokkaku and Kyôgoku - even the warrior monks from Mount Hiei join in. Also stories involving families from neighboring provinces like the Asakura, Saitô and the Ashikaga will make their mark.
The book contains several beautiful color plates, countless color photos, maps, and illustrations; all with the intent of bringing a vivid and easy understandable description of a feudal clan from the land of the rising sun.

I hope a lot of Kickstarter's readers and supporter are able to support me.
Thank You All!

Sincerely,
Terje Solum 

Risks and challenges

There are no risks in this enterprise as I see it. I will do as I did with volume 6. Of course if anything should happen to me - sickness or worse then things might be delayed. But I will update on a weekly basis, so this should be a safe journey.
