Stubborn Twig: Three Generations in the Life of a Japanese American Family

by Lauren Kessler

In 1903, Masuo Yasui came to America and eventually became a successful orchardist and father of eight children. But the “relocation” of Japanese Americans during World War II caused Yasui to take his own life. The Yasui family opened its records and memories to Lauren Kessler, who writes a social history that rings with truth and drama.
