Moon’s determination to live free and isolated the way his father taught him soon brings him into contact with more people than he’s ever seen in his entire life. He becomes “property of the state”and must live in a boy’s home. Will Moon escape the law and return to the forest? As Moon discovers both the good and the bad about the outside world, he begins to wonder if what Pa told him was really true at all!

Americans start to suspect that all Japanese people are spies for the emperor. As suspicions grow, Sumiko and her family find themselves being shipped to an internment camp in the hottest deserts of Arizona. She soon discovers that the camp is on an Indian reservation and that the Japanese are as unwanted there as they’d been at home in CA. She meets a Mohave boy who just might become her real friend, if he can ever stop being angry about the fact that the internment camp is on his tribe’s land. Slide50:  THE WHITE Elephant by Sid Fleischman Slide51:  Run-Run, a young elephant trainer, discovers the answer when he infuriates the prince… his punishment?

It is poor Run-Run who must feed the beast hundreds of pounds of food each day, scrub it clean, wash behind its ears, and above all, keep it from doing any work.
