This is a Must Read
I loved this book. From his trip to America as a six or seven year old alone on a large ship (in steerage) with only the food he could carry, to his life in and out of internment camps during WWII, to his rise to success as a photographer, his life story is an inspiration to us all. This story reminds us of why immigrants make our country so great. Once you start this book it is hard to put down. The authors, Risa Shimoda, Midori’s daughter, and Bob Fleshner, capture Midori’s personality and spirit. The authors bring Midori’s story top life with its humor and its challenges. I highly recommend this book as a reminder of why immigration today remains as important to our country’s success as it ever has in the past.
