Review:
The narrator remembers World War II, when he, a small American boy of Japanese ancestry, was uprooted and "relocated" to a desert camp. As tempers in the claustrophobic camp frayed, the smart parents set up baseball games. And on the diamond the young hero proves himself - there in camp, as well as later in the face of bigotry at home again. The unembellished narrative is powerful; the illustrations, often suffused in a golden haze, indicate times past.
