Miriam Pawel - The Crusades of Cesar Chavez: A Biography ♦
In her first book, The Union of their Dreams, Pawel recounted the history of Chavez’s United Farm Workers movement. Her second delves into the life of the courageous and often contradictory man who confronted California’s agriculture industry and bettered the lives of thousands of mostly Latino workers. A man of deep humanity, the charismatic Chavez rose from laborer to leader—then spiraled down into an unfortunate cult of personality. (Bloomsbury)
