Hunt for the Bamboo Rat by Graham Salisbury
Hunt for the Bamboo Rat is a gripping narrative of a young Japanese American boy named Zenji Watanabe. Zenji was recruited into the U.S. Army as a spy during the early tensions between Japan and America.
Captured by the Japanese, he is accused of being a traitor for working for the U.S. He endures years of torture and abuse and suffers through unimaginable hardships while they attempt to force a confession out of him. Never once does he give in and admit he was anything except a U.S. civilian.
This story is well written and easy to read. It has a fantastic flow and is very hard to put down. Graham Salisbury’s writing is so detailed. He paints you a picture so clear you can actually see the story come to life.
