On February 19, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, forcing the evacuation of over 100,000 Japanese-Americans from the West Coast to settlement camps inland. The unethical dislocation of so many lives has been documentedMoreOn February 19, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, forcing the evacuation of over 100,000 Japanese-Americans from the West Coast to settlement camps inland.

The unethical dislocation of so many lives has been documented in several poplular books, but none, until now, have focussed on the internment camp known as Amache, located on the southeastern plains of Colorado. This book not only presents the story of Amache within the broader context of World War II, but also details the effect the camp had on surrounding towns and Colorado in general. Based on extensive research as well as interviews with many of the survivors (many who chose to remain in Colorado), this book statisfies a long-standing need for a comprehensive history of this shameful episode in our history.
