This classic collection, first published in 1938, serves as a wonderful introduction to Steinbeck's work. Set in the beautiful Salinas Valley of California, where simple people farm the lands and struggle to find a place for themselves in the world, these stories reflect Steinbeck's characteristic interests—the tensions between town and country, laborers and owners, past and present.
