Review:

An ALA Booklist Editor’s Choice
 
* “A striking, humance portrait.... Diamond’s perceptive black-and-white drawings blend well with reproductions of Lange’s photographs.”
—Booklist, starred review
"Meltzer writes as accessibly to younger children as he does to advanced readers of his distinguished nonfiction. The story is outstanding,"
—Publishers Weekly
“Lange's work defines an era of destitution and drought, and still resonates even now. This is the perfect introduction to one of the world's greatest photojournalists.”
—Practical Photography
“Lange was the first woman to be awarded the Guggenheim Photography Fellowship and this book showcases her most famous work, an arresting 55-picture, chronologically ordered documentation of the lives of migrant workers during the Great Depression.”
—The Independent
"Meltzer has an intuitive eye for the illuminating image, event, moment. . . . He respects his readers, whatever their age."--The New York Times Book Review
