In this powerful and moving biography of one of the greatest labor leaders in the history ofAmerica, students come face-to-face with an inspirational man whose trials and tribulations echoed the struggles of modernAmericaand whose courage, simplicity and faith changed agriculture inAmericaforever.

Paperback, brief, and inexpensive, each of the titles in theLibrary of American Biographyseries focuses on a figure whose actions and ideas significantly influenced the course of American history and national life. In addition, each biography relates the life of its subject to the broader themes and developments of the times. This text focuses on Chavez, but also provides the much needed background of the farm workers movement, the formation of the UFW and the history of migrant workers in the U.S. This text incorporates the latest scholarship on Chavez’s life and times, but makes the story accessible to students in both survey and upper division courses in American history.
