Dolores Huerta: A Hero to Migrant Workers

by Sarah Warren
Illustrated by Robert Casilla

Published by Marshall Cavendish, 2012
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢠩614-61074

Ages 59

Dolores Huerta played many roles in her efforts to help organize underpaid farm workers. As a teacher, she saw that her students were often too hungry or sick to learn. When she investigated why, she learned about their families employment hardships, which in turn motivated her to campaign for better working conditions and pay. A brief text highlights Huerta抯 efforts and determination over many years, as she organized strikes, generated publicity, confronted farm bosses, and pursued her beliefs in the face of criticism. A timeline and list of additional print and electronic resources round out a welcome biography of this Mexican American activist.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
