Following a kayaking accident, a man experiences the feelings of children interned during World War II and children on Indian reservations.
"Say's use of darkness in the portrayal of childhood innocence is a poignant interpretation of what children, whatever their culture, must feel when so tiny and scared and far from where they long to be." The Los Angeles Times
"What Say does so successfully here is to show how displaced children feel; how, through some unnamed strength, they manage to survive and find their way home....The story's real focus is not so much the re-examination of America's historical past as the recollection of its emotional past—a past we become a part of through Allen Say's intense dreamscape." The New York Times Book Review
