By Charles Ferguson.

In words and photographs, the story chronicles the camp experience through the voice and perspective of a young sansei girl from Hollywood, California. She describes the routine of camp life as well as the fear and uncertainty about the future that she and her family face. At the book’s conclusion she wonders, “Isn’t America still democratic?”

Seeing hard truths and difficult circumstances from a child’s point of view is more relevant than ever before. We feel this story will resonate with audiences unimagined in 1943. Included is a foreword by JANM Chief Curator Karen Ishizuka that describes the history of the Fergusons and the artifact. Hardbound: 32 pp.

The publishing date has been delayed. Due to the current COVID19 crisis shipping of this book has been delayed until May. We apologize for the continuous delays, but these circumstances are out of the ordinary. We appreciate your patience.
