Quotes:
I was eleven in the summer of 1935. My father was farming then in the valley of the Santa Rosa, San Jacinto, and Chocolate Mountain Ranges called Imperial Valley ... The land was fertilized with tons of chicken manure and irrigated by the All American Canal that flowed out of the Colorado River. Planting started in late September: tomatoes, squash, cantaloupe. All during the winter months, it was thinning the seedlings, weeding, building brush covers for them, repairing the covers after a storm, and starting the smudge pots to ward off the frost. In early spring, it was harvesting the crops. By May, after the broiling sun had reduced the plants to dry twigs, the plowing began.
