The adventure finally took off sometime in October, and there I was, learning the long way what should have been the actual contents of that first class I took on American History, within the first month of setting foot in the US.
Ken and Jukichi Harada, a school teacher and the daughter of a Samurai, came to the US at the beginning of the 20th Century. They worked hard to give their children a comfortable life, yet their American experience offered them challenge after challenge. Ken and Jukichi both died at the Internment Campo of Topaz, in Utah. Only their daughter, Sumi, lived through old age at the house that caused them years of litigation and head aches. The house is, today, one of two buildings in the National Register of Historic Sites.
