Summary
  • " ... In this moving memoir, Jeanne Wakatsuki recalls coming of age in Manzanar, a bleak, dusty settlement behind barbed wire. She tells of her family's struggle to adjust to life in cramped barracks, fearful and searching for purpose in their new surroundings. She describes finding a sense of normalcy in activities like glee club and baton-twirling, while armed guards loomed above in the watchtowers. 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 child who discovered what it was like to grow up a prisoner of her native country."--Back cover
