GENRE: WWII

SETTING: Dutch Harbor, Alaska, 1942

CENTRAL FEMALE CHARACTER: Anna

SYNOPSIS: During WWII Anna and her family were relocated to a camp for Japanese people. They were Aleut living in Alaska. The camp was an old cannery, filthy and broken down, very little food, illness and a broken American human spirit. This is a story that must be read and must be told. Our American history does not give the details of the plight of many Americans during WWII. ( )

Quotations
Heritage night, it was so boring!  Just a bunch of old people talking about how their ancestors had lived like a bigillion years ago and about what mighty seal, bear and whale hunters they had been way back when Alaska had been a mostly untouched wilderness.
I will make you a deal, read it and write a report on it for me and I will buy you a new video game.
Her mom was always telling her to take pride in her heritage.  The Aleut people.
Dad, he was out on a four-month contract on a fishing boat
As they flew together through the night sky the woman came to realize that the man was none other than Igaluk, the Great Moon Spirit.
