Imagine being told by the government that you and your family have a week to sell your house and all you own except for what you could carry to move to an undisclosed location and that you don't know if, or when, you will ever return home. This is what happened to those of Japanese descent on February 19, 1942- just two months after Japan's militant leaders unexpectedly attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941- a date which will live in infamy. After the attack, the United States of America went on the defensive and, in an act fueled by hysterical panic and growing racism, all Japanese Americans were forced to leave all they had earned in the land of opportunity. It was unfair and unjust, the exact opposite of what the United States stands for. Who let this happen and why? What grief did it cause at the time, and what effect did it have on the generations of Japanese Americans born after the war? Has the United States ever made amends to those it had so severely wronged? These questions, and so many more, are answered, so that history may never repeat itself.

Are there really large, hairy apelike creatures living in remote parts of the United States? The term sasquatch is a Native American word for the hairy bigfoot giants that people claim to have seen. There have been sasquatch sightings in every U.S. state except Hawaii and an amazing video clip taken in the California mountains in 1967 shows a strange, apelike creature that many experts say is authentic. Read this book if you're interested in a fascinating mystery on the margin of science.
