“A breathtakingly tender story of both person and homeland. . . humaniz[ing] the incredible diversity of the Japanese American experience. . . . An absolute essential read.” —Katie Yamasaki, author of Fish for Jimmy

A small-town boy, Kenny Higashi, worked on his family’s vegetable farm the Black Hills. Then Pearl Harbor is attacked. Harris shares her research into the real experiences of Kenny and other Japanese Americans in South Dakota and during World War II.
