Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought it was an easy read but important both from a historical and personal view of what
it must have been like to uproot, put your faith in someone and courageously move half a world
away. The anticipated prejudices, trials and tribulations of being the first Japanese to settle
in America is well told - simply and colorfully through the eyes of a young boy. Nicely done.

I remember borrowing this book so many times from the school library and even did a book report on it. The struggle to adjust to a completely different lifestyle that Koichi and his family go through are poignantly displayed in the book. Having to go from a feudal warrior culture to California's gold rush era is quite a shock to one's cultural sensibilities. I applaud Yoshiko Uchida and this wonderful book of hers.
