Mexicans rebel against grape picking, and then fight for freedom.
We're still fighting that battle today, hopefully we'll win.

To me, the turtle parable in chapter three is The Grapes of Wrath in a nutshell. It's the story of an unrelenting struggle against man and nature for the God given right to simply exist, as well as a call for humanity in the treatment of the downtrodden.

As with most Steinbeckian novels, The Grapes of Wrath summarizes the average American man's tough economic struggle of the depression in what historians have affectionately called "The Failed American Dream".

Farmers did the stupidest thing in the earth's history of farming and everyone paid for it, so they carted their stupid assess to cali because petiole lied to them and botched a pregnancy because a model t has no shocks and solid tires but that girl breast fed a dying man at the end so it makes you forgive their stupidity a little bit.

I probably have one of the longest sentences and still skipped over a lot of stuff.

And God brought his vengeful wrath down upon the heathenous grapes and thus grapejuice was invented and enjoyed by all of His chosen people.

no, it isn't

the octopus by frank norris is a great american novel, commenting on most of the same themes as steinbeck, but he's actually good at writing

Wasn't the movie adaptation in black and white until they got to California, where it switched to color?
