Description

Harvesting Hope is an ALA Notable book. As a young boy, Cesar lived happily on his family's ranch in Arizona. But when a severe drought lost them the entire crop, his family also lost their home. With thousands of other unlucky families, the Chavez's moved to California where they lived in poverty and worked as migrant workers. It bothered Cesar greatly that the workers were treated like slaves by the landowners. So he organized the workers and marched to the state capital in protest.

Professional reviews

"This picture book biography highlights the childhood incidents that shaped Cesar Chavez into the inspirational founder of the United Farm Workers. It dramatizes his struggle to organize migrant workers, focusing on the union's 340-mile protest march and 1965 strike against grape growers. Robert Ramirez gives a competent, if uninspired, reading. While the strong text holds up as an aural experience, children should certainly not miss the striking art in the picture book. This powerful story shows what can be accomplished when courageous individuals commit to passive resistance under a great leader. E.S. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
