About this title

Synopsis:

The left-at-home residents and ranchers of Luster, Wyoming, and the Japanese-American inmates of nearby Heart Mountain Relocation Camp contend with colliding political and personal circumstances

From Library Journal:

When Japanese-Americans were relocated during World War II, about 10,000 were sent to Heart Mountain Relocation Camp in Wyoming. Ehrlich's first novel portrays the camp as it was seen by the ranchers and small-town residents who lived outside its gatespeople like Mckay, who runs the family ranch while his brothers fight in the Pacific and whose cook, Bobby Korematsu, ends up at Heart Mountain. It also portrays the diverse population of the camp, people swept away by the forces of history and an avalanche of racial prejudice. Author of poems, essays, and the highly praised The Solace of Open Spaces ( LJ 11/1/85)a paean to her adopted stateEhrlich here puts her considerable gifts to good use, expressing her love for the land and people of Wyoming in beautifully crafted prose.
