The publisher's blurb reads: ''At the time of the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941, approximately 127,000 persons of Japanese ancestry were living in the continental United State, mostly in Washington, Oregon, California, and Arizona. In 1942, the government ordered the removal of about 108,000 of these people from their homes, and place them in 10 relocation centers in 7 different states. There were, in fact, two Tule Lake centers; the first was opened as a relocation center in May 1942; the second emerged from the first in 1943, and was known as a segregation center. Although they occupied the same location, the same buildings, and made use of the same facilities, the operational purposes and objectives of the two centers differed significantly. What these differences were, and how they came about, are the major concerns of this book. The author says, 'It had been my hope over the years that someone would come along with a book that would provide the public with a more complete and accurate understanding of what took place in the centers during those regrettable years. Until now this has not been done, which finally led to my decision to try my hand at writing the kid of book I feel is needed.'' 8vo (about 9 inches tall) 122 pages. Bibliography, index.
