Journey to Topaz: A Story of the Japanese

by Yoshilko Uchida


Quick Overview

Like any 11-year-old, Yuki Sakane is looking forward to Christmas when her peaceful world is suddenly shattered by the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Uprooted from her home and shipped with thousands of West Coast Japanese Americans to a desert concentration camp called Topaz, Yuki and her family face new hardships daily.


Based on Yushiko Uchida's personal experiences, this is the moving story of one girl's struggle to remain brave during the Japanese internment of World War II. In a bleak and dusty prison camp, eleven-year-old Yuki and her family experience both true friendship and heart-wrenching tragedy. JOURNEY TO TOPAZ explores the consequences of prejudice and the capacities of the human spirit. First published in 1971, this book is now a much loved and widely read classic. Size 0.47" H x 8.24" L x 5.32" W, 160 pages
