This is an updated edition of the 1994 book chronicling the moving of two Heart Mountain barracks to the Japanese American National Museum. An all-new section details what happened to the barracks after the camp was closed, featuring interviews with homesteaders who acquired the once-temporary buildings for a dollar each, and still live in and use them today.

More than 30 new photographs by Stan Honda feature present-day views of the former camp. The book delves into the intersection of the mass detention and the local Wyoming population at a time when race and ethnicity continue to raise questions about issues surrounding immigration and civil rights. Paper: 72 pp.
