In the strike-bound landscape of 1930s California, work is as scarce as it is hard, and a day's wages are designed to provide nothing more than a day's food. This forerunner to "The Grapes of Wrath" portrays a vicious clash between exploiter and exploited, scab and striker, cop and migrant.

Set in California apple country, a strike by migrant workers spirals out of control, as principled defiance turns into blind fanaticism. Caught in this upheaval is Jim Nolan, a once aimless man who finds himself briefly becoming the leader of the strike before being crushed in its service.Product Description:
