Now here is something special. This edition of Steinbeck's 1939 epic of the Joad family is a newly edited version based on his original manuscript, typescript, and proofs. Words omitted or misconstrued by typists have been restored to the text for the first time. This volume combines fiction and nonfiction works and includes the text of the 1938 collection of short stories, The Long Valley, which contains "The Red Pony." There is also The Log from the Sea of Cortez, which is Steinbeck's account of a marine biological expedition, and The Harvest Gypsies, his investigative report on migrant workers that inspired Grapes. This corrected text edition of The Grapes of Wrath is essential for all serious American literature collections, both academic and public.
