Kessler follows the family from its first generation in the US to the descendents living throughout the country today. The text includes discussion questions for reading groups and an interview with Homer Yasui, son of the Yasui patriarch. Distributed by the U. of Washington Press.

Winner of the 1994 Oregon Book Award for Literary NonfictionFrom the Inside Flap:
Masuo Yasui traveled from Japan across the other Oregon Trail—the one that spanned the Pacific Ocean—in 1903. Like most immigrants, he came with big dreams and empty pockets. As Masuo broke the race barrier in the local business community, his American-born children broke it in school, scouts and sports—until December 7, 1941, changed their lives forever. Stubborn Twig is a classic American story—a story at once tragic and triumphant, one that bears eloquent witness to both the promise and the peril of America.
