Review

"Tamura's book makes history personal and is a worthy addition to the numerous existing accounts of the incarceration."David Takami, Seattle Times
(David Takami Seattle Times 2014-01-19)

"Minidoka: An American Concentration Camp is worthy of the highest recommendation especially for public and college library history collections."—Midwest Book Review
(Midwest Book Review)

We live in Idaho and have been to Minidoka, so that makes it more interesting. Have also taken a class through our local senior citizens and absolutely love the class.

A moving look at the human side of a dark time in US history. Minidoka shows the faces of the stories. The gifts that people were willing to give to their country that put them in concentration camps is amazing.

Very good book on a nearly forgotten topic that meant a great deal in years gone by. Good book, good buy.

The writing and photos were very thoughtful and moving. It is also a documentary which provides much to learn by young and old.

Read a local newspaper review and thought it would be good source book to learn about the internment camp located in Idaho not far from home. Newspaper indicated that it was a good read but honestly, it was more of a compilation of data obtained as an oral history with updates for several internees. Photojournalism contained inside was not very rich with historical information that I sought to learn about but only found scattered references in the material. This might be better to have a resource book in a public library rather than something that would appeal to an individual--unless you were of Japanese descent.
