Seller ID: IM59741


The Big Bend is one of the last places left in America that's a long way from anywhere. Maybe that's why it draws such an eclectic range of people. Certainly it was Big Bend's unexplored remoteness that drew Bill Wright and three high school friends on an Easter break in 1950.

The first Japanese immigrants to the United States came to Hawaii to work on sugar plantations, quickly followed by others who came to mainland cities.

In the forties, fifties, and sixties a new breed of youth evolved -- the juvenile delinquent -- and this state of emergency was... View more info
