Factories in the Field: The Story of Migratory Farm Labor in California
This book is a reissue of the original 1939 publication. Dramatizing the misery of the dust bowl migrants hoping to find work in California agriculture, this text starts with the scandals of the Spanish land grant purchases, and goes on to examine the experience of ethnic groups that have provided labour for California's agricultural industry.
