An underground classic, this book looks at the Hawaii plantation experience for Japanes-Americans in the 1930's.

Journal Entry 2 by wingkiwiinenglandwing at Wellington City, Wellington Province New Zealand on Monday, May 06, 2013
A fascinating short read about a period of time and experiences I knew nothing about. A family of Japanese who live in Hawaii try and create a life eeking out an existence working on cane plantations. It is basically slave labour, with a well established hierarchy that puts them at virtuallying the bottom of the heap.

Focusing on two brothers who learn English at school and Japanese at home, the young men try and find their way living with cultural expectations to obey their parents while seeking to pay off a family dept.
