Water Water Journeys and Travels: Finding Home

So Far from the Sea

So Far from the Sea


Language/s: English

Set in 1972, Laura Iwasaki recounts her family’s visit to her grandfather’s grave at the former Manzanar War Relocation Camp in eastern California where thousands of American citizens of Japanese ancestry were relocated during World War II. Laura’s grandfather, a tuna sherman, was robbed of his boat, home and dignity when he was sent to the camp, far from the sea that he loved. Laura says goodbye to her grandfather in her own way and poignantly shows patriotism to America.
