WISH ON AN APPLE

An unusual book on a migratory crop-picking family that holds to the ideal of a home of their own. They follow the crops through California into Oregon, hoping to find a place where they can stay. Through lots of hard work, dependability, cheery natures and fair share of luck, they get their dream home, a farm in Oregon. The people are vivid, the story sustained, the subject interesting in its details of apple orchards -- all in all, one of Garst's better books. There isn't the power of Lois Lenski's Journey for Judy --(Lippincott- 1947) but has some of that appeal.
