Summary

Summary

From Hawaii's sugar plantations to California's truck farms, Japanese Americans have overcome pervasive discrimination and legal restrictions to become the best educated and most assimilated of all Asian immigrants. The book recounts their story, from field workers to picture brides, from business pioneers to politicians, from war heroes to Olympic champions.
