by Douglas Furr

Postwar America saw a new awakening of migrant workers and their search for acceptance in society. The children of the dustbowl had participated in the emergence of a powerful nation; now their children must enter the struggle to prove they, too, were worthy Americans.

Fifteen-year-old Kendrick Stokes, driven from his family, seeks acceptance in a different camp. Gradually, over the course of a summer, he finds a new “family,” where he is not only accepted—he is admired and becomes a role model for future generations.


Retired Navy Master Chief Douglas Furr lives in Seattle with his wife, Mary, where they happily struggle with the short growing season. You can take the migrant out of the fields, but you can’t take the field out of the migrant.
