Heart Mountain: The History of an American Concentration Camp
by Douglas W. Nelson
When Douglas Nelson first encountered the site of the Heart Mountain camp as a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin, virtually nothing remained of what had been home to 14,000 Japanese Americans during World War II. His deep research into the existing archives produced this groundbreaking and Pulitzer nominated book that was first released in 1976. Now updated with a foreword by Norman Mineta and Alan Simpson, written shortly before Norm's passing, this new edition includes a chapter on the history of the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation and dozens of new photographs. Read the book that inspired two generations of scholars about this chapter of American history.
