By Manabi Hirasaki, with Naomi Hirahara.
A young boy running through the garlic fields of Gilroy, California. A Japanese American on the battlefields of World War II Europe. A thirty-something man staking out new land for a farming venture that would change his life. Manabi Hirasaki, the son of a successful California farmer, lived this Nisei experience in his own way and on his own terms. A Taste For Strawberries vividly recounts one man’s enduring relationship with the world of strawberries and his rise to become the first non-European American board member of Driscoll Strawberry Associates, the world’s largest commercial strawberry distributor. A 522nd Field Artillery Battalion veteran, savvy entrepreneur, and generous philanthropist, the story of Mr. Hirasaki’s life is sure to touch readers with its spirit and humor.
