Farewell to Manzanar by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston
“As I continue my quest to learn more about the personal accounts of Japanese American citizens following the bombing of Pearl Harbor, I turned to this blog. Rebecca has done a wonderful job of offering ‘similar reads’ for all of the recommended books. I turned to my previous recommendation of Silver Like Dust , and found a suggested read, Farewell to Manzanar by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston. Farewell to Manzanar is the true story of one spirited Japanese-American family’s attempt to survive the indignities of forced detention…and of a native-born American child who discovered what it was like to grow up behind barbed wire in the United States. Library Journal calls [the book] ‘an extraordinary episode in American history'”.
