A powerful account of a family's journey to the fields of California -- to a life of constant moving, from strawberry fields to cotton fields, from tent cities to one-room shacks. Seen through the eyes of a boy who longs for an education and the right to call one palce home, this is a story of survival, faith, and hope. It is a journey that will open readers' hearts and minds.

One of my favorite books ever. Uno de mis libros favoritos. What I like about this book is that the writing is easy to read yet it is powerful in meaning. One really gets caught in the plot of the book. Lo que me gusta mas de este libro es que el lenguage es muy facil de leer, pero no por eso menos intenso. Uno es capturado en el desarroyo de la historia instantaneamente. I highly recommend the book. It is a writing piece for all ages. Recomiendo mucho este lirbor es una obra literatia para chicos y grandes.
