Of the 120,000 Japanese Americans forced from their homes by the US Government during World War II, nearly 14, 000 were sent to the base of Wyoming's Heart Mountain. There, in the fall of 1943, the camp's high school football team, the Eagles, earned an undefeated season against predominantly white high schools. In their second season, some of the Eagles were caught up in the draft and while some resisted, others joined the Army. This utterly absorbing, true account is ideal for fans of The Boys in the Boat.
