This brilliant debut volume explores and celebrates the author's Japanese heritage in the great Northwest. From "Because You Showed Me a Piece of Barbed Wire" Because you showed me a piece of barbed wire that had lain on the road beside a lone sign marking all that remained of -barracks, rowed and eclipsed by the shadow of Heart Mountain, I thought of my mother beginning her tour of Japan.

    This book inspired a great Decemberist's tune "The Crane Wife" which sparked my desire to read it. It is BEAUTIFULLY written and illustrated and a great read for kids. Check it out...

    Sharon Hashimoto has a keen ear for the lyrical, for the compression of sounds and lines. She is a sculptor of moments. This collection of poems is one to be studied and emulated.
