FACING THE MOUNTAIN A True Story of Japanese American Heroes in World War II

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Louis Ozawa

History • 17.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Louis Ozawa narrates this true story about Japanese-Americans at home and abroad during WWII. There is little dialogue; thus, Ozawa narrates in a slightly different tone, depending on where and when the story is taking place. He modulates between hope and despair with the deftness of a film composer. Furthermore, when words are spoken, Ozawa slips into a Hawaiian, Japanese, or American accent as though he were a native speaker from each region. These heartbreaking stories shine a much needed light on the way those of Japanese heritage were treated during the war, and Ozawa's deft narration makes them even more compelling and hard to forget. A.R.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2021 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
