Cultivating California: Growers, Specialty Crops, and Labor, 1875-1920 (Revisiting Rural America)
Professor David Vaught PhD

The Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999

Every grower was not, in fact, like every other, Vaught argues, whether one examines their labor systems, recruiting ...

CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2013
