Japanese in America by Noel L. Leathers

Accidental immigrants, the first few Japanese in America were shipwrecked sailors rescued by U.S. Vessels. By 1990, however, thousands of Japanese were at work in America. Many sent to Japan for 'picture brides' and became permanent, prosperous Americans, but also the victims of intense discrimination. Although more than 100,000 were penner up during world War II for simply begin Japanese, these remarkable Americans have remained deeply proud of their heritage and their many contributions to Americans.
