First printing. Forty years before this book was published, in 1942, the author was a student at the University of California in Berkeley when she and her family were sent to Topaz, a bleak camp surrounded by barbed wire in the middle of the Utah desert. In addition to the picture this gives of day-to-day life within the camps, this book describes her life growing up as a nisei, a second generation Japanese American, the anti-Japanese hostility in the years preceding World War II and also celebrates the remarkable resiliency and sense of community of the issei. INSCRIBED on the front endpaper and dated in the year of publication. Illustrated with photographs. 154 pp. Near fine in near fine dust jacket (corners of a few pages dog-eared.) .ISBN # 0-295-958987
