"Facing The Mountain" By Daniel James Brown

Book cover for "Facing the Mountain"

Daniel James Brown, the bestselling author of “The Boys in the Boat,” has a new book entitled “Facing the Mountain.” It is a World War II saga that showcases the special Japanese American Army unit that overcame brutal odds in Europe; their families, incarcerated back home; and a young man who refused to surrender his constitutional rights, even if it meant imprisonment.

“Facing the Mountain” forces readers to grapple with questions of who willingly and unwillingly makes sacrifices for our country, how constitutional rights look different to each of us, and what it really means to be a patriot.
