Cesar Chavez: A Triumph of Spirit
Author/Editor: Richerd Griswold Del Castillo
ISBN: 0806129573
Year Published: 1995
Format: Hardcover, Paperback 
Description: A biography that approaches the story of the farm worker and labor organizer in the context of Chicano and American history. It shows a shy and quiet man--thrust by events into a maelstrom of campesino strikes, religious fervor, and the fight for social justice--whose life was touched by the major events in the Mexican-American chronology, from Mexican immigration in the 1920s, through forced repatriation in the 1930s to the Chicano movement of the '60s and '70s and, finally, the "new immigration" in the 1990s.
