Abstract:

"When Mary Matsuda Gruenewald was seventeen years old she and her family were evacuated to an internment camp for Japanese-Americans, along with nearly 120,000 other people of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast. She tells her story of imprisonment from the heart and mind of a woman now eighty years old who experienced the challenges and wounds of internment at a crucial point in her young life. She captures the emotional and psychological essence of growing up in the midst of this profound dislocation and injustice. No longer willing to stay within what she describes as "the self-imposed barbed-wire fences built around my experiences in the camps," Gruenewald breaks her silence as a Nisei with the publication of her first book."--BOOK JACKET.
