Young Esperanza had been wealthy and pampered in Mexico—until her father was murdered and she fled to Depression-era California.
There, in a squalid San Joaquin Valley labor camp, this princess-turned-peasant endures hard labor, a dust storm, Valley Fever, violence between growers and strikers, and prejudice that ranks Mexicans even lower than Okies. The novel teaches the power of hard work, love, and hope.
