- ‘Chasing the Harvest’ and ‘In the Fields of the North’
By Elaine Elinson - Wednesday Jul 19, 2017
[...] there have been a wealth of books about California farmworkers, from Steinbeck’s iconic “Grapes of Wrath” to Peter Matthiesen’s “Sal Si Puedes,” published at the height of the Delano grape strike, to Matthew Garcia’s recent “From the Jaws of Victory,” with revelations from an excavation of United Farm Workers archives.Though the crops they harvest yield $47 billion dollars annually, their average annual income is $14,000.Sanchez worked the onion fields and orange groves and is now an advocate with California Rural Legal Assistance living in Arvin, a whisper of a town south of Bakersfield where Steinbeck once did research.Roberto Valdez, a 48-year-old farmworker who lives in a trailer with his family in Thermal, in Riverside County, took cell phone videos in the scorching fields after his teenage son almost died from heatstroke.Valdez became an advocate for safe conditions, even testifying before the state Legislature: The hands that you see are the hands that harvest the lemons you use to make the lemonade you are now drinking.Valdez’s testimony and videos helped win the passage of regulations protecting workers from extreme heat.Rosario Pelayo, a 77-year-old great-grandmother of 21 from Calexico, proudly shows Thompson a photo that appeared in El Malcriado, the UFW newspaper, when she was arrested during the grape strike in 1974.Bacon’s comprehensive bilingual volume also includes oral histories, as well as analytical essays and hundreds of black-and-white photos.A former union organizer, Bacon is the author of “The Children of NAFTA and Illegal People,” and his photos have been exhibited in the U.S., Mexico and Europe.Avoiding both sensationalism and sentimentality, the photos reveal not only the workers’ desperate poverty, but also the dignity of their toil and their consuming effort to provide a better life for their children.Clusters of shacks outside city limits lack sewage, electricity and water treatment, forcing the residents to buy bottled water for drinking and cooking.Bacon’s photos are most captivating when he focuses on people’s faces and calloused hands as they prune vines, cut lettuce and sort strawberries.In accompanying captions, they remember precisely how many buckets of jalapenos, blueberries or tomatoes they picked, how much they weighed and how much they earned per bucket.Both Bacon and Thompson bring us one step closer to Bulosan’s masterful novel, providing not just an intimate, but an insider look, at the lives of California’s farmworkers.
