In the early 1930s, when the country was in the throes of the Great Depression, a drought devastated the American Midwest, expelling from their farms tens of thousands of farmers who were forced to migrate in search of work. It is calculated that almost 150 thousand Americans wandered the roads of California, offering their services as temporary workers for the harvest. In spite of their having been necessary in order to collect all the crops, the locals received them with hatred and disdain, calling them ignorant, dirty, and carriers of disease. John Steinbeck, then a promising young writer, wrote a series of articles on these migrant workers, published in 1936 in the San Francisco News.
