Harvesting Hope

by Kathleen Krull Illustrated by Yuyi Morales

César Chávez is known as one of America's greatest civil rights leaders. When he led a 340-mile peaceful protest march through California, he ignited a cause and improved the lives of thousands of migrant farm workers. Krull and Morales tell the story of how a poor, shy boy grew into a renowned labor leader.
