Item No.: 150562


gift wrap?: 

Edited by Naomi Hirahara.

Green Makers explores the little-known history of an enterprising group of men and women. Learn how Japanese American gardeners transformed the Southern California landscape for more than a century. Equipped with only pick-up trucks and lawnmowers, they faced discriminatory laws and even the forced removal from their homes during WWII. Yet they remained committed to their goal: to make Southern California green for their families, ethnic communities, and region.

This volume includes original writings, photographs, historic summaries, and a timeline spanning a hundred years. Written in both English and Japanese.

Paper: 160 pp. B/W photos.
