Description


Illus. with photographs from the Dust Bowl era. This true story took place
at the emergency farm-labor camp immortalized in Steinbeck's The Grapes of
Wrath. Ostracized as dumb Okies, the children of Dust Bowl migrant
laborers went without school--until Superintendent Leo Hart and 50 Okie kids
built their own school in a nearby field. The story is inspiring, and Stanley
has recorded the details with passion and dignity. An excellent curriculum
item.--(starred) Booklist.
