- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
The strongest message from Stubborn TWIG is a deeply American one -- that we are all immigrants. Few people, myself included, are native Oregonians.
I came to this book wanting an education about Japanese internment. That is part of the book, but not the most important, though in that respect it has satisfied my need to know about that part of our history.
But the book is really a deep character study written in narrative form. It tells a seldom told side of Oregon that really wasn't that uncommon. It is about a couragous man -- not always a good man -- who raises his family on American values and with the American promise in mind.
It broke my heart -- more than once.
