Summary

First published to critical acclaim in 1986, Naomi_s Road is the story of a girl whose Japanese-Canadian family is uprooted during the Second World War. Separated from their parents, Naomi and her brother Stephen are sent to an internment camp in the interior of British Columbia. For the young girl growing up, war only means that she can no longer return to her home in Vancouver, or see her parents. Told from a child_s point of view and without a trace of anger or malice, Naomi_s Road has been praised as a powerful indictment of the injustice of war and the government_s treatment of Japanese-Canadian citizens, both during and well after World War II.This new edition is based on an expanded version of the story published in Japan. In it, Kogawa brings in more of the extended family and answers the question so often asked by fans of the original book: What happened to Naomi_s mother? With a historical note and a new ending, cover, and interior drawings by popular children_s illustrator Ruth Ohi, this book will be an absolute must for owners of the original as well as a whole new generation of young readers.
