Two Taproots by Marguerite Thoburn Watkins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


I think of the start of our trip as a spring evening in Mussoorie in North India when the grownups shut the door to a Fir Clump living room with the children left outside to play unsupervised on the graveled flat. It was long past time for home and homework. Closeted inside were all the adults from both Fir Clump and South Hill, their hushed voices indistinguishable from the sounds of evening -- crickets, leaves in the wind, crack of twig, the hills settling down. The mixed-age group of youngsters hung together, realizing that something important was happening behind those doors. In India we seemed always to have been at war, yet it had not directly affected Americans. Now here we were, amusing ourselves outdoors as the shadows lengthened and our mothers whispered about things unfit for the ears of children -- Japanese prison camps with their privations and atrocities. Three months later we were on the deck of the troop ship S. S. Brazil. So starts Marguerite Thoburn Watkins
