What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 9 in a series – “…rows of barracks that seemed to spread for miles across this plain.”

August 7th, 2019

This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas


”We drove past a barbed-wire fence, through a gate, and into an open space where trunks and sacks and packages had been dumped from the baggage trucks that drove out ahead of us. I could see a few tents set up, the first rows of black barracks, and beyond them, blurred by sand, rows of barracks that seemed to spread for miles across this plain.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston
