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.

“Stanley’s text is a compelling document…The story is inspiring and disturbing, and Stanley has recorded the details with passion and dignity.”—Booklist
