First published in 1939, Steinbeckâs Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joadsâdriven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. Out of their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities of an America divided into Haves and Have-Nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision, elemental yet plainspoken, tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity.Â A portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, of one manâs fierce reaction to injustice, and of one womanâs stoical strength, the novel captures the horrors of the Great Depression and probes into the very nature of equality and justice in America.Â At once a naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeckâs powerful landmark novel is perhaps the most American of American Classics.
This edition also contains Grapes of Wrath, The Grapes of Wrath, The Grapes of Wrath, The Grapes of Wrath
