Nakane intervie wed those still living in the area in the early 1980s and\, in Nothing Lef t in My Hands\, used their own words to narrate their progress in America\ , from their lives as farmers to the trying periods of anti-immigrant legi slation and banishment to internment camps during World War II\, and final ly to the resumption of their lives after the war."\n\nThe book club is al ways open to new members.
