Synopsis: Gathers oral histories from Japanese immigrants, most of them women, that discuss leaving Japan, life as farmers and orchard workers, and the World War II relocation.
From Library Journal:
Between the late 1800s and the 1920s, Japanese immigrants (Issei) settled in various places along the Pacific Coast states. In this volume, surviving Issei who settled in the rural Hood River Valley in Oregon tell their stories in interviews conducted by Tamura, an academic and a Sansei (third-generation) native of Hood River. In their own words, the immigrants explain how and why they came to America, their dreams, and their often harsh new life, mostly as farmers and orchardists. Eleven of the 14 elderly interviewees are women, whose unexpectedly positive attitude toward life in the World War II relocation camps gives the book a unique twist. This valuable resource on the Japanese American experience is recommended for academic and large public libraries with collections on Asian American history. --Katherine L.
