Illustrated with black-and-white photographs. Young Shi Nomura was among the 120,000 American citizens who lost everything when he was sent by the U.S. government to Manzanar, an interment camp in the California desert, simply because he was of Japanese ancestry. "In clear and fascinating prose, Stanley has set forth the compelling story of one of America's darkest times--the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.  His meticulously researched volume is accompanied by numerous, fine period black-and-white photographs...This eloquent account of the disastrous results of racial prejudice stands as a reminder to us in today's pluralistic society." --School Library Journal(starred)
