Across Two Worlds, Memoirs of a Nisei Flower Grower
Item No.: 150982


gift wrap?: 

By Yoshimi Shibata.

Across Two Worlds traces a lifetime of challenges faced by a man who, bolstered by his early training and values, not only triumphed over tremendous personal adversity, including forced internment during WWII, but rose to become an international leader in the California floriculture industry.

Founder and former president of the Wholesale Florist & Florist Suppliers of America, Mr. Shibata helped launch its first trade show, and innovated many standard practices employed by the floral industry today. He also won a landmark victory in propagation rights that went all the way to the Supreme Court and resulted in a revolutionary new business model for proprietary plant varieties.

Paper: 194 pp.
