Farewell to Manzanar : a true story of Japanese American experience during and after the World War II internment by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Jeanne Wakatsuki was seven years old in 1942 when her family was uprooted from their home and sent to live at Manzanar internment camp--with 10,000 other Japanese Americans. Along with searchlight towers and armed guards, Manzanar ludicrously featured cheerleaders, Boy Scouts, sock hops, baton twirling lessons and a dance band called the Jive Bombers who would play any popular song except the nation's #1 hit: "Don't Fence Me In." 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
