Chuck Tasaka, author of the popular Hanatarebozu: Runny Nosed Brats of Greenwood, launches his newest book exploring a family history of Greenwood-Midway.

Tasaka narrates the trials and tribulations of families who settled in Greenwood – Midway, originally as pioneers in the late 1800’s and then some forcibly during internment in the wake of WWII. The author presents everyday people and their struggles, revealing a cross-section of families involved in industries ranging from ranching, to sawmills, smelters, and small enterprises.
