The first chapter of the book covers Grace's happy childhood alongside her many siblings. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Tameji is one of the Issei community leaders who was arrested and held in a series of internment camps over the next several months. Take and the unmarried daughters move in with one of Grace's older sisters and her husband, who live in\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Military_Areas_1_and_2\" title=\"Military Areas 1 and 2\">\n  Military Area 2\n </a>\n , east of the initial area from which Japanese Americans were initially excluded. But three months later, they are forced to move from there as well. They opt to join another sister who has become a nurse at\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Manzanar\" title=\"Manzanar\">\n  Manzanar\n </a>\n . Grace and another sister eventually leave Manzanar early in 1943 to join another sister and her husband who buy a farm in eastern Oregon. But after a few month, Grace moves to Boise where she becomes a live-in housekeeper and goes to college. She rejoins the family in Los Osos when they return in 1945. Later chapters cover her marriage to Yoshimi Shibata, whose family grows flowers in Mt. Eden, California, and their business and family life that comes to include three children. When the children leave the house, Grace manages a new floral supply arm of the family business. Upon her retirement, she attends Mills College—where three of her sisters had attended—and eventually graduates in 2000. The book includes a postscript that updates the story of various family members and the family business; several of Grace's writings (an affectionate biography of Take and three autobiographical short stores set on the farm prior to WWII that she wrote while at Mills); copies of both family and general documents centering on the incarceration period; and a family timeline.\n</p>\n<p>\n The introductory materials—a Foreword by Dan Krieger, a Preface by Arthur A. Hansen, and an Introduction—provide some background on the book. At the urging of her family, Grace had agreed to do a memoir and worked with her daughter, Naomi Shibata, on it. Described by Naomi in the introduction as \"an expansive oral history,\" Grace and Naomi also interviewed three of Grace's older sisters, visited Manzanar and other sites important to her life story, looked at family photographs to jog memory (many of which are reproduced in the book), and sought additional information in archives and online. Though a memoir, the voice in the main body of the book is of an omniscient third person narrator that refers to Grace in the third person.\n</p>\n<p>\n <i>\n  Bend with the Wind\n </i>\n is the third memoir by a member of the Eto/Shibata family. Grace's husband, Yoshimi Shibata, wrote his own memoir\n <i>\n  Across Two Worlds: Memoirs of a Nisei Flower Grower\n </i>\n (2006), while Grace's nephew edited and published his mother (and Grace's sister) wartime memoir\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Nurse_of_Manzanar:_A_Japanese_American%27s_World_War_II_Journey_(book)\" title=\"Nurse of Manzanar: A Japanese American's World War II Journey (book)\">\n   Nurse of Manzanar: A Japanese American's World War II Journey\n  </a>\n </i>\n (2009). Each of the volumes was privately printed, though all are available to some extent at libraries and through online retailers.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\">\n <b>\n  Authored by\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">\n   Brian Niiya\n  </a>\n  , Densho\n </b>\n</div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n Niiya, Brian\n</div>\n<p>\n Might also like\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Dandelion_Through_the_Crack/Kiyo%27s_Story_(book)\" title=\"Dandelion Through the Crack/Kiyo's Story (book)\">\n   Dandelion Through the Crack/Kiyo's Story\n  </a>\n </i>\n by Kiyo Sato;\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/We the People: A Story of Internment in America (book)\" title=\"We the People: A Story of Internment in America (book)\">\n   We the People: A Story of Internment in America\n  </a>\n </i>\n by Mary Tsukamoto;\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Looking Like the Enemy: My Story of Imprisonment in Japanese-American Internment Camps (book)\" title=\"Looking Like the Enemy: My Story of Imprisonment in Japanese-American Internment Camps (book)\">\n   Looking Like the Enemy: My Story of Imprisonment in Japanese-American Internment Camps\n  </a>\n </i>\n by Mary Matsuda Gruenewald\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.100 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.105 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 302/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2119/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 6771/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1852/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 3/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:4188-0!*!0!*!*!5!* and timestamp 20180627004119 and revision id 28962\n -->\n",
