At the start of WWII, the Seattle suburb of Bainbridge Island was 10% Japanese-American, an ethnic community fully integrated into a small town way of life. Walt and Milly Woodward, publishers of the island’s community newspaper, fought the forced internment of their neighbors, and helped the island community grapple with their exile. Mary Woodward tells her parents’ story, fully illustrated with period photographs and documents. This brave, principled couple remain heroes to the Japanese-American community — the story of their fight helps us comprehend how precious our civil liberties are, and how easily they can be lost. 9780974951072
