    Stubborn twig : three generations in the life of a Japanese American family by Lauren Kessler( file )
    9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 153 libraries worldwide
    "Masuo Yasui arrived in America in 1903 with big dreams and empty pockets. He worked on the railroads, in a cannery, and as a houseboy before settling in Hood River, Oregon, to open a store, raise a large family, and become one of the area's most successful orchardists. As Masuo broke the color barrier in the local business community, his American-born children broke it in school, scouts, and sports, excelling in most everything they tried. But none of their accomplishments could shield them from the sometimes intense racism that scarred their formative years. December 7, 1941, changed their lives completely and forever. Forced from their homes with only what they could carry and interned in vast inland camps, the family was shamed and broken. But the Yasui family endured, as immigrants have always endured, to claim their place as Americans in a diverse and sometimes troubled society."--Publishser's web site
