What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 12 in a series – “Animals live like this.”

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

”We’ll get this whole place as tight as a barrel, Mama. I already met a guy who told me where they pile all the scrap lumber.” “Scrap?” “That’s all they got. I mean, they’re still building the camp, you know. Sixteen blocks left to go. After that, they say maybe we’ll get some stuff to fix the insides a little bit.” Her eyes blazed then, her voice quietly furious. “Woody, we can’t live like this. Animals live like this.”

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