Hallelujah I’m a Bum—Summary—The year is 1942. George Robinson is half Japanese and half American. He does not want to be interned with his family in a Japanese Internment camp in California, so he hops on a freight train and ends up in Harriet, Wisconsin. He sleeps on the lawn of a scrap metal dealer. He is invited to breakfast by the mother of the family. The beautiful daughter, Wanda, suddenly is confronted with George at the breakfast table and does not like the situation. For the next two years, George works for the owners of the scrap business, becomes an important participant in America’s role in the scrap material collecting program, and is totally ignored by Wanda. It takes a tragic event to cause her to become civil to George and to fall in love.
