The Grapes of Wrath celebrates the strength, endurance and resilience of the American farm family. Set during the Great Depression, the story focuses on the Joads, a family of poor tenant farmers who are driven from their Oklahoma home by drought, economic hardship, agricultural industry changes and bank foreclosures forcing tenant farmers out of work. Finding themselves in a hopeless situation, the Joads set out for California, seeking jobs, land, dignity and a future.
