There's like 50 other "Suggestions/Recomendations" threads, but what the hell. I recently finished (gobbled up is more like it) Shōgun by James Clavell and it has officially claimed the title of "My Favorite Book". It was great, but I am partial to Japanese Culture, Samurai and the like.

Another great one, to me anyways, if you like indians and frontiersmen, is Moon of Bitter Cold by Fredrick J. Chiaventone. It's an awesome narrative around the events of the push west. Awesome characterization and tale of pioneers trying to establish a settlement within Indian territory.
