Comments

From the dust jacket- "With the attack on Pearl Harbor, everything changed in Yoshiko Uchida's life. She tells of her father's abrupt seizure by the FBI; of the family's frantic efforts to vacate their home on ten days notice; of being forced to live in a horse stall, deprived of every human privacy; and of being sent on to a bleak camp in the Utah Desert, ringed by barbed wire and armed guards and plagued by terrifying dust storms."
