Baseball Saved Us

By Sheryl McFarlane's Book Blog

It is a powerful story of how both children and adults built a baseball park in the desert, of how the American game helped to ease some of trials of the internment camp and of how baseball helped to break down the scars and barriers of post-war discrimination. The illustrations are powerful and evoke the dust and desolation I experienced when visiting Manzanar. I highly recommend a virtual visit to Manzanar, and I highly recommend this story. —Sheryl McFarlane’s Book Blog
