Summary
"The Grass Creek Chronicle is set in a Wyoming oil field camp during World War II, with a 10-year-old girl as its protagonist and observant chronicler. Though the war seems a distant rumble, it becomes more immediate when a Japanese internment camp is built on nearby Heart Mountain. While the child observer doesn't judge either the adults or other children with whom she interacts, the fragments of life in wartime with which she builds her story show over and over how mundane choices, both her own and of those around her, often have impactful, momentous, and sometimes hurtful consequences. And in an irony fit for cruel times, the two adults most deserving of her admiration are her Bavarian grandfather and a young Japanese man from the internment camp"--Amazon.com
