Summary
"The Grapes of Wrath, published in 1939 and considered by many to be John Steinbeck's crowning literary achievement, is a powerful and evocative examination of the lives of the working class during the Great Depression. It is the story of the Joads, a family of Oklahoma tenant farmers on a quest for a better life, as they head west to California where they become migratory workers. Steinbeck's compassionate and stark storytelling earned The Grapes of Wrath a Pulitzer Prize and helped to solidify Steinbeck's literary reputation. For more than sixty years, The Grapes of Wrath has achieved popular and critical support, and continues to be widely read and discussed. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
