MY HERO recommends this book to children readers.
Cesar Estrada Chavez had a dream for his people. He hoped to form a union for farm workers, a union that would be more than a collection of laborers, but a community, or una causa. Until his death in 1993, Cesar Chavez worked to build such a community, or union, of farm workers. A national union, the United Farm Workers, was his lasting contribution. Popular Carolrhoda author David R. Collins tellingly presents the life of this labor leader, political activist, and farm worker's friend.
