- "Twenty years after the book 'Moving Walls: Preserving the Barracks of America's Concentration Camps,' by Sharon Yamato with photographs by Stan Honda was published, Sharon received a grant from the National Park Service through the Japanese American Confinement Sites (JACS) grant program to expand the book as well as produce a documentary focusing on the barracks that remain in the Wyoming area from the Heart Mountain Relocation Center camp and the people who purchased them as homesteaders after the war. The initial project (click here for images) documented the preservation of two barracks from Heart Mountain. Sharon and Stan traveled to Wyoming in May 2015 to interview surviving homesteaders and their children and find the structures that remain in the area. In August they traveled back to Wyoming to attend the Heart Mountain Pilgrimage, a gathering of surviving camp inmates, their families and friends of the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center."--Photographer's website.
