An epic human drama depicting the devastating effects of the Great Depression, The Grapes of Wrath won both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, cementing its place as the most American of American classics. First published in 1939, Steinbeck’s novel chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. Out of their repeated collisions with hard realities of an America divided into the Haves and Have-Nots evolves a drama intensely human and yet magnificent in scale and moral. An evocative portrait of the conflict between powerful and powerless, of one man’s fierce reaction to injustice, and of one woman’s stoical strength, The Grapes of Wrath probes into the very nature of equality and justice in America. Penguin Random House Canada is proud to bring you classic works of literature in e-book form, with the highest quality production values.
