Tamura is a third-generation, or sansei, Hood River Japanese whose eagerness to discover her roots led her to undertake this oral history of the original farmers and merchants.

Those living in Hood River and southwest Oregon were moved to Tule Lake, just south of Klamath Falls in northern California. Most of the people at the Portland Assembly Center were sent to Minidoka, Idaho, one of ten camps located in remote areas of the West. Ironically, by the time the camps were constructed, the United States had turned the tide of the war in the Pacific at the battle of Midway, eliminating the threat of a Japanese invasion of the West Coast.

The Shinano River incised valley lies east of the bounding fault zone and runs seaward, approximately parallel to it. The incised valley deepens to more than 160 m below mean sea level near the coast, deeper than sea-level fall during the Last Glacial Maximum, because of subsidence governed by the fault zone. In this study, we examined the sediment stacking patterns of the incised-valley fill at 1000-year scale by analyzing sedimentary facies and radiocarbon ages from three sediment cores from the Echigo Plain.

Comments to eBook The Hood River Issei: An Oral History of Japanese Settlers in Oregon's Hood River Valley (Asian American Experience)

I was married to the son of one of the Issei written about in this book. The author was very accurate and when I read this and compared it to the things my husband said about the evacuation when he was 11 years old, my eyes filled with tears for each and every one of these individuals that were wrongly imprisioned.
It's so easy
Great historical review. My father was was a 10 year old from Hood River when his family was removed to internment camp. They lost their farm and most of their belongings which were never returned. Must read.

As a native son of California and a career missionary who was assigned to Japan for 40 years, I appreciated the insights concerning the motivations of Japanese who emigrated to the United States west coast. I appreciated also the interpretation of the prejudicial treatment they endured before, during and following the Pacific war.

Having been to Hood River Valley and seeing the fruits of the Japanese is a pleasure Their toil and hardships were amazing. Anne

An excellent, insightful collection of American stories gleaned from oral histories of the small-town community of Hood River, Oregon. Tamura herself has family from this area. Her scholarly eye focuses on the early immigrants of Japanese ancestry from the early 1900s, whose pioneering spirit and ingenuity helped them to survive the travails of the 1900s, including the Great Depression and en masse incarceration during World War II. A must read, in my opinion, for anyone seeking to study about this period in American history. I must reveal my bias, as a descendant of two of the featured "isseis," in the book. I personally do not know the author, but learned that first generation members of our families were friends. I was born and raised in the Los Angeles area, but grew up visiting Hood River with family, and have seen this town change over the past 30 years. My family and I have found the book to be honest and revealing into my grandparents' lives. The book peers into the lives of the extended "issei" community, who are now all but gone in the year 2006, but live on through stories such as those found in this book.
