Gr 5–8—Two prominent photographers and one prisoner, working with smuggled equipment, highlighted the
injustice of incarceration and the remarkable resilience of interned Japanese Americans during WWII. Tamaki
intersperses striking illustrations with the text and photos for a visually arresting complement to the horrifying story.

Such a sad, troubled life Woody Guthrie had. despite this his songs are full of hope, beauty and the demand that we strive for something better. This biography written for youth 12 and up is written simply without being patronizing. It does not shy away from the harsh tragedies in Woody's life, but tries to create an honest story to bring some understanding of this remarkable folk hero.

Expected photos. Not many. Otherwise, good.

I'm kind of in love with this book because of how well it documents (or seeks to document) one of the travesties of American History--that of internment camps. (Which are really concentration camps let's be real)

See how media control narratives flipped the script
See how cameras were smuggled in to tell the whole story
See how the spirit of the Japanese Americans never wavered

This is a must for collections
