A young American officer and his efforts to impose efficient Western ways on a simple little village on Okinawa right after World War II.
The American Colonel in command at Okinawa thought he might win General's stars if Okinawa had modern housing, schools, progressive organizations and profitable business. But the Colonel's plans laid an egg in Tobiki village. captain Fisby, in charge there, just couldn't get "American" ideas across. Instead, in a weak moment, he accepted a gift of two geisha girls, who mobilized Tobiki--with explosive results for the Colonel, the Captain, and the community.

Vernon J. Sneider (6 October 1916 – 1 May 1981) was an American novelist perhaps most noted for his 1951 novel The Teahouse of the August Moon, which was later adapted by John Patrick for a Broadway play in 1953, a motion picture in 1956, and the Broadway musical Lovely Ladies, Kind Gentlemen in 1970. The play The Teahouse of the August Moon won the Pulitzer Prize in Drama in 1954. He was born and died in Monroe, Michigan. He was the son of Fred Sneider and Matilda D. Althover Sneider. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame in 1940, he entered the army. He was a member of a military government team that landed in Okinawa in April 1945. There he became commander of Tobaru, a village of 5,000 people that became the Tobiki Village of The Teahouse. He was married first to Barbara Lee Cook (1925-1968).
His novel A Pail of Oysters, about life during the White Terror in Taiwan, was reissued by Camphor Press on February 28, 2016, the 69th anniversary of the 1947 2-28 Incident.
