A too-forgiving man and his stupid brute of a friend travel as farm hands to scrape together money for the dream of owning their own land.
A thriller, a gripping tale ... that you will not set down until it is finished. Steinbeck has touched the quick.

An unforgivably-terrible book. Awful almost beyond reason. Plodding and boring, it's only a "page turner" because it's tauntingly short enough to tear through like ripping off a bandage. But on the plus side, although it's littered with written-accents, it's not difficult to read.. plus the ending is great!
