Stubborn Twig: Three Generations in the Life of a Japanese American Family (New Edition)
by Lauren Kessler

Stubborn Twig is a classic American tale, about immigrants making their way in a new land. Masuo Yasui arrived in America in 1903 with big dreams. He worked on the railroads, in a cannery, and as a houseboy before settling in Hood River, Oregon. He opened a store, raised a family, and became one of the area’s most successful orchardists.

Lauren Kessler is the author of ten books, including her newest, Clever Girl: Elizabeth Bentley, the Spy Who Ushered in the McCarthy Era. Kessler directs the graduate program in literary nonfiction at the University of Oregon in Eugene.
