This is a fresh, personal account of one of the greatest injustices in 20th-century US history. Bill Hosokawa, this country's leading Japanese American journalist, tells how he, his wife, and their infant child were herded into a US World War II relocation camp in Wyoming. After graduating from the University of Washington, the young Bill Hosokawa gained prominence as a reporter for the "Singapore Herald", the "Shanghai Times", and the "Far Eastern Review". However, his interment during World War II abruptly put his budding journalism career on indefinite hold. To his good fortune, he found work at "The Denver Post" after the war, where he rose through the ranks from copy desk chief to associate editor and editor of the editorial page. Despite his temporary imprisonment, Hosokawa managed to begin publishing his popular 'From the Frying Pan' column in the Pacific Citizen in the early days of World War II, a column he wrote without interruption for over fifty years.
