2nd printing. Lacks jacket. Spine slightly toned, ink gift note on front endpaper. 1939 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author!. 619 pp. 8vo. Original beige cloth, brown titles & wrap-around image of the Joads headed to the mountains, blue top page ridge. Battle Hymn of the Republic music printed on endpapers. Set during the Great Depression, it traces the migration of an Oklahoma Dust Bowl family to California and their subsequent hardships as migrant farm workers. It won a Pulitzer Prize in 1940. The work did much to publicize the injustices of migrant labor. The narrative, interrupted by prose-poem interludes, chronicles the struggles of the Joad family's life on a failing Oklahoma farm, their difficult journey to California, and their disillusionment once they arrive there and fall prey to a parasitic economic system. The insularity of the Joads--Ma's obsession with family togetherness, son Tom's self-centeredness, and daughter Rose of Sharon's materialism--ultimately gives way to a sense of universal community.
