Sintesi dell'editore

Stubborn Twig is the true story of immigrants making their way in a new land, a moving saga about the promise and perils of becoming an American.

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 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.

But their lives changed forever on December 7, 1941, when they were forced from their homes into vast inland camps. Although shamed and broken, the Yasui family would yet endure to claim their place as Americans.

Outstanding.

This is a story everyone should read. The story that did not want to be exposed yet needed to be for us all to understand. The love and honor in a family that was over shadowed by some of the darkest days in US history. Well performed.

An American Injustice

Although this may be a Japanese American journey into America, it speaks about the ugliness, prejudice, and hate as well as the kindness, strength and heart of humanity in America. Unfortunately, we have not yet learn the lessons of yesteryears.
