On February 19, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, forcing the evacuation of over 100,000 Japanese-Americans from the West Coast to "settlement camps" inland. The unethical dislocation of so many lives has been documented in several poplular books, but none, until now, have focussed on the internment camp known as Amache, located on the southeastern plains of Colorado. This book not only presents the story of Amache within the broader context of World War II, but also details the effect the camp had on surrounding towns and Colorado in general. Based on extensive research as well as interviews with many of the survivors (many who chose to remain in Colorado), this book statisfies a long-standing need for a comprehensive history of this shameful episode in our history.

About the Author:

Robert Harvey is a teacher in the Douglas County Schools in Colorado. He lives in Denver.

Review:

Since many Amache residents are dead, Harvey does a service to history by preserving the stories of those still living. Amache is a documented account as well as an absorbing story of what the author calls "perseverance in the face of tragedy and loyalty despite persecution." (Sandra Dallas Denver Post and Rocky Mt. News )

Amache satisfies a long-standing need for a full-blown history of this disgraceful episode in our history. (Anne Thompson Rocky Ford Daily Gazette )
