What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 36 in a series – “Where are we?”

“He said that we should consider the place our home until the War Authority told us otherwise,” Obaachan says. The prisoners were ordered to stay together with their families, and to exit the train in an orderly fashion. The registration, which would go by number and not family name, would take some time, and they would need to be patient. “Excuse me, sir,” an older gentleman said to a guard who stood beside him. “Where are we?” The guard refused to look at the man and seemed annoyed with the question. “Wyoming,” he said, stepping off the train, and then he called over his shoulder, “Heart Mountain.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

What I'm Reading: Those were hakujin beaches. Whites-only beaches.
