Artist Estelle Peck Ishigo was one of the few Caucasians to be interned with 110,000 Japanese-Americans in 1942; she refused to be separated from her Japanese-American husband and lived with him for four years behind barbed wire at Heart Mountain Camp in Wyoming. During that time she recorded the rigors and deprivations of camp life in sketches and watercolors that form a moving portrait of the lives of the internees – the struggle to keep their health, dignity, and hope alive.
