Esperanza Rising
Ryan, Pam Muñoz

For the first 12 years of her life, Esperanza Ortega is pampered by servants and sheltered by her doting parents on their ranch in Aguascalientes, Mexico. But a sudden tragedy shatters that world of wealth and privilege. Homeless and destitute, she and her mother emigrate to California to work in the fields and start a new life.


Privileged, wealthy Esperanza must leave Mexico to work in a labor camp on the eve of the Great Depression.
