ESPERANZA RISING

ESPERANZA RISING

By Pam Munoz Ryan. Young Esperanza had been wealthy and pampered in Mexico—until her father was murdered and she fled to Depression-era California. There, in a squalid San Joaquin Valley labor camp, this princess-turned-peasant endures hard labor, a dust storm, Valley Fever, violence between growers and strikers, and prejudice that ranks Mexicans even lower than Okies. The novel teaches the power of hard work, love, and hope. Grades 4–8. Scholastic Press. 262 pages. ©2000.
