Publisher Summary
Illus. with photographs from the Dust Bowl era. This true story took place at the emergency farm-labor camp immortalized in Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. Ostracized as "dumb Okies," the children of Dust Bowl migrant laborers went without school--until Superintendent Leo Hart and 50 Okie kids built their own school in a nearby field.

Describes the plight of the migrant workers from the Dust Bowl in California during the Depression who were forced to live in a federal labor camp and discusses the school that was built for their children
