By Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston & James D. Houston.
This classic story of life in one of America’s concentration camps is told from the view of seven-year-old Jeanne Wakatsuki. For a child, Manzanar became a way of life in which Jeanne struggled and adapted, observed and grew. For her father it was essentially the end of his life.
Written with her husband, Jeanne delivers a powerful first-person account that reveals her search for the meaning of Manzanar. Farewell to Manzanar has become a staple of curriculum in schools and on campuses across the country.
