During World War Two a community called Manzanar was hastily created in the high mountain desert country of California, east of the Sierras. Its purpose was to house thousands of Japanese Americans. One of the first families to arrive was the Wakatsukis, who were ordered to leave their fishing business in Long Beach and take with them only the belongings they could carry. For seven-year-old Jeanne Wakatsuki, Manzanar became a way of life in which she struggled and adapted, observed and grew. For her father it was essentially the end of his life. ???? At age thirty-seven, Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston recalls life at Manzanar through the eyes of the child she was. She tells of her fear, confusion, and bewilderment as well as the dignity and great resourcefulness of people in oppressive and demeaning circumstances. Written with her husband James D. Houston, Jeanne delivers a powerful first-person account that reveals her search for the meaning of Manzanar. ???? First published in 1973, this new edition of the classic memoir of a devastating Japanese American experience includes an inspiring afterword by the authors.
