Item description for Fruit Tramps by Bertha Walsh...
Fruit Tramps tells the story of the Walling family as they travelled across America seeking work as migrant laborers. Calling to mind Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, the poignent storytelling will deeply involve you in the family's quest for a better life. The author's reminescences are full of details regarding a time in American history that many may regard as part of a more innocent past; when simple joys were richer, tragedies were faced more stoically, and a faith in God's wisdom was a comfort in the face of adversity.
