From the Publisher:
After their release from an American concentration camp, a Japanese-American girl and her family try to reconstruct their lives amidst strong anti-Japanese feelings which breed fear, distrust, and violence
In 1942, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, college student Yoshiko Uchida, her family, and 120,000 other Japanese Americans were forced, by the United States government to leave their homes and live in internment camps. Uchida has recounted this difficult time in her memoir THE INVISIBLE THREAD. After a 1952 visit to Japan, Uchida published her first book, a collection of Japanese folk tales entitled THE DANCING KETTLE AND OTHER JAPANESE FOLK TALES. In addition to her folklore collections, Uchida has also written historical fiction about Japanese-Americans as a means of sharing Japanese culture with all children.
