Wild Daisies in the Sand is a collection of the author’s diary entries, written during his imprisonment in internment camps as a Japanese Canadian during World War II. Behind barbed wire fences in Petawawa and Angler, Ontario, Tom Sando tells first-hand the experience of Canadian citizens who were deemed dangerous by the Canadian government simply because of their association with Japan. To shed light on this lesser-known piece of Canadian history, Sando intersperses his diary entries with illustrations highlighting feelings of loneliness and hope, and the importance of human connection and understanding. This book could be used as a study of the diary format of literature, or as an exploration of this darker point in Canadian history.
