An outstanding history of the United Farm Workers (UFW) beginning with the action of a group of Filipino farm workers who walked off the California fields in 1965 under the leadership of Larry Itliong. Brimner thoroughly chronicles the rise of union and civil rights leader Cesar Chavez and the controversies surrounding him. A compelling narrative with great use of primary sources, photographs and other archival images. Accessible and attractively design. An exemplary work providing great insight into an essential chapter of American labor history. ( )

An exceptional book that focuses on the cultural and social history of farm workers movement. The story traces the creation of the United Farm Workers union and the use of protest techniques such as boycotts along the way. The book is design for middle school readers. The additional headings and subheading are extremely useful for students locating information within the chapters. The inclusion of photographs, maps,timelines and other elements add to the quality of the text and its usefulness in student research. ( )

A story about the Filipino migrant workers quest for better wages and equal treatment in the migrant worker industry. Set in California, during 1965, this is a story which is relevant even in today's minimum wage disputes.

Strike! The Farm Workers’ Fight for Their Rights by Larry Dane Brimner explores the complex history of farm workers movement. Like many works related to this topic, union leader César Chávez plays a central role in the story. The narrative traces the creation of the United Farm Workers union and the use of protest techniques such as boycotts along the way.

What makes this work of nonfiction for youth exceptional is its focus on the cultural, social, and political tensions of the time period. Brimner’s well-research narrative and balanced approach addresses controversial topics such as racial tensions and issues of religion related to the movement.

The book’s design will appeal to middle grade readers. Visual elements can be found on almost every page and quotes from key players are woven into the text. However, additional headings and subheadings could be useful in assisting readers in locating information within the chapters.

The inclusion of photographs, maps, and other primary resources (e.g., telegraph message, cartoons paintings, posters, sketches) make it a useful book in addressing Common Core Curriculum standards. In addition, the author’s note, timeline, further readings, source notes, index, and other elements add to the quality of the text and its usefulness in student research.

Larry Dane Brimner is known for his well-researched, visually rich works of nonfiction for youth. Other titles include Birmingham Sunday, We Are One, and Black & White. Learn more about the author at http://brimner.com/.

This book would be an excellent addition to any nonfiction collection for youth. ( )
