Peach Farmer's Daughter
By Brenda Nakamoto; Roan Press, 2011
Book Description from Back Cover:
"This unconventional, poetic, yet gritty memoir from Davis-based writer Brenda Nakamoto evokes her childhood as the daughter of a peach farmer in rural northern California, investigates her roots as sansei (third-generation Japanese-American), and movingly reflects on the decline of her aging parents. Nakamoto's deep connections to the land, farming, family, and the complexities of personal and family history give her work weight and balance."
