Book Description from Back CoverIn his book "Cressey: Land of Sand and Stars" Eugene Lee lovingly documents the life of a small agricultural town in California's Central Valley. It was a community made up of many immigrant cultures - Japanese, Mexican, Portuguese, and a scattering of Anglo Saxons. All were struggling to establish families and to survive. United in their love for the United States, they shared their meager earnings as a community getting through the hard times of the Great Depression, World War II, and the Japanese Internment.
