Farewell to Manzanar by Jeanne Houston, James D. Houston

Jeanne Wakatsuki was seven years old in 1942 when her family was uprooted from their home and sent to live at Manzanar internment camp--with 10,000 other Japanese Americans. Along with searchlight towers and armed guards, Manzanar ludicrously featured cheerleaders, Boy Scouts, sock hops, baton twirling lessons and a dance band called the Jive Bombers who would play any popular song except the nations #1 hit: Dont Fence Me In.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <i>Farewell to Manzanar</i> is the true story of one spirited Japanese-American familys attempt to survive the indignities of forced detention . . . and of a native-born American child who discovered what it was like to grow up behind barbed wire in the United States.
