Home of the Brave
By Allen Say
During World War II more than 120,000 men, women, and children of Japanese descent living in America were incarcerated in internment camps by the United States government. Now, sixty years later, Caldecott Medalist Allen Say eloquently depicts this dark moment in history with Home of the Brave.
Home of the Brave was inspired by National Museum exhibitions on the camp experience. In this mythical journey through a haunting and familiar landscape, a man meets two children who are lost. He embarks on a mysterious personal journey as he tries to help them find their home.
