Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A compelling book about the children of homeless "Okie" migrant workers and the school they built at a farm-labor camp in Dust Bowl-era California.

Illustrated with photos from the Dust Bowl era. 1993 ALA Notable Book; 1992 Notable Children's Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies; 1992 Booklist Editors' Choice; 1992 Library of Congress Book of the Year; 1993 Orbis Pictus Award for Outstanding Nonfiction for Children.
