Overview

Down in My Heart: Peace Witness in War Time

From 1942 to 1946, William Stafford was interned in camps for conscientious objectors for his refusal to be inducted into the U.S. Army. As a pacifist, he worked on conservation projects for Civilian Public Service, an alternative program for young men who refused to participate in World War II. As a writer, he recorded the life he found there; the fellowship within the camps and the antagonism outside them. This memoir offers a rich glimpse into a little-known aspect of the war and a fascinating look at the formative years of a major American poet.
