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.

There is so much history we do not learn in school how selfish and self serving so many people were and still are. People wanted to work not asking for a handout. Adults and children died while food was deliberately thrown away. It was an atrocity I cannot even imagine the heartlessness of these people. I'm speechless .
