<em>El Caracol</em>: The Story of Alfonso — Labor Camp Child
Product Description: Alfonso Cruz Espinosa was born into the loving arms of his parents in 1927 in Los Angeles. Following their own American dream, he and his family migrated from Los Angeles to the San Joaquin Valley of California. There they moved from labor camp to labor camp, facing the hardships many Depression-era workers encountered, multiplied by the fact that discrimination against non-white workers was blatant and widespread. A tale lovingly told by Espinosa's daughter, El Caracol is a beautiful testament to the strength and tenacity of the human spirit.
