Based on the true story of the Japanese invasion of the Aleutian Islands of Alaska in the summer of 1942, a young Aleut girl tells what life was like when her small home of Kashega was taken over and she, along with her family and community, were put into internment camps in her own country. 50,000 first printing.
There's a more recent YA novel about the Aleut forced relocations that I'd thought about getting my daughter for Christmas, but I changed my mind after reading reviews about how inaccurate that book is. One of the reviewers recommended this book to me instead.

I'm so glad! This is exactly what my daughter will love! She already wanted to know more about the Japanese internments, so I've also got her a YA about that, "Journey to Topaz" by Yoshiko Uchida. This is a perfect companion, and also for itself. I love its poetry. I know my daughter will too. She's just a kid, but she's alert to the horrors in the world. She wants the truth about them, but she also wants to know how to respond with strength and hope, like the girls in these books do.

(P.S. The other book I decided against is "Kiska" by John Smelcer. Very dishonest!)
This is a story set in a poetic way of an Aleutian girl and the internment of the Aleutian people during World War II. You know the devastation of the spirit, the death of the friends and family, the horror of being relocated to a strange land where your people, who are proud and have survived many generation of hardship, don't know how to survive. Many die, and many find a way to live. When they return to their homes, the military has looted and/or destroyed everything. This shows the horror that happened to the Aleutian people at the hands of the country that was to protect them. It is a piece of U.S. and World War II history that is rarely spoken about, and is not in history books. Even the Alaskan History books we use in our classrooms only have a small square dedicated to this tragedy. This is a very good book. Even my third grade class enjoyed it.
Oh goodness, I hate to say I dislike it but my goodness it is choppy, poorly written, no contextual descriptions. Its like reading missing pages from a diary that has a language barrier. Its really terrible.
I love Karen Hesse books. I've always been the type to never pick up a book or never finish them but with her books I want to read more. I go to college and we have to do book reports and this has been my fourth book report and this is my third one I have done book reports on of Karen's books. Plan on reading more of her books over the summer.
Grew up in Ketchikan and never knew the real story. Thank you so much.
Sad past of US. Interesting that another whole culture is wiped out by being "saved" from war through moving entire towns out of harms way into alienation. War is murder in so many forms. Descriptive poetics of human trials.
Interesting subject, poetry was lost with E reader
I was surprised at how much I thought I knew about this story but didn't know. This book shows a side of Alaska's history that still has lingering effects in our population today.
