This book is the result of my unsuccessful attempt to write about the sugar beet experience which many Japanese had to endure as a result of their exile from the "Protected Area". My request in the "Nikkei Voice" for responses from the men who had had that particular experience in Ontario, resulted in two replies. Given the lack of survivor response, I decided instead, that I would research the Public Archives of Canada, on the Road Camps instead. This book, then, is the result of that research.
