FACING THE MOUNTAIN provides a portrait of Japanese American life during World War II, but its lessons have never been more relevant than now. Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have seen a rise in anti-Asian sentiment throughout the country. FACING THE MOUNTAIN forces us 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. Unblinking, unsentimental, and without euphemism FACING THE MOUNTAIN lays out in vivid detail how the American government and people treated the Japanese Americans, before and during the war, and why that matters today.

Pete Davis is a writer and civic advocate from Falls Church, Virginia.

He works on civic projects aimed at deepening American democracy and solidarity. Pete is the co-founder of the Democracy Policy Network, a state policy organization focused on raising up ideas that deepen democracy, and is currently co-producing a documentary on the life and work civic guru Robert Putnam. In 2015, he cofounded Getaway, a company that provides simple, unplugged escapes to tiny cabins outside of major cities. His Harvard Law School graduation speech, “A Counterculture of Commitment,” has been viewed more than 30 million times — and was recently expanded into a book: Dedicated: The Case for Commitment in An Age of Infinite Browsing.

Pete is also the author of Our Bicentennial Crisis: A Call to Action for Harvard Law School’s Public Interest Mission, a book on reviving Harvard Law School’s public interest mission, and the co-author of How To Get Away: Finding Balance in our Overworked, Overcrowded, Always-On World, a book articulating Getaway’s philosophy of balancing technology and disconnection, city and nature, and work and leisure. His opinion pieces have appeared in The New York Daily News, Aeon, The Guardian, Fast Company, America Magazine, and The Falls Church News-Press.
