Publisher's Summary

This is the compelling story of the "Okie" migration to California and of the construction and life of a remarkable school at a farm workers' camp. This memorable book provides a glimpse of a neglected period of American history and tells a story of prejudice being transformed into acceptance and despair into hope.

An interesting little story from the Dust Bowl

Quick little book. It lacks in a lot of detail. It, perhaps too, is lacking in any critical analysis of the subject. The story has in an interesting connection to Steinbeck and the Grapes of Wrath. It is interesting to see what one man, given enough authority, and with enough will, can do, despite the great obstacles but in the way. This is also a reminder of a more shameful part of California's past.
