Required reading in many American, Australian, British, New Zealand and Canadian high schools, it has been the frequent target of censors for what some consider "offensive" and "vulgar" language, and appears on the American Library Association's list of the Most Challenged Books of 21st Century. *** Plot summary: Two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression – George Milton, small in stature, intelligent, and cynical, but caring, and Lennie Small, a physically strong, but mentally limited man – come to a ranch in Soledad, California to "work up a stake". They are fleeing from their previous employment in Weed.[1] There, the childlike Lennie has been run out of town (with George accompanying him) after Lennie, who loves to stroke soft things, tried to stroke a girl's red velvet dress; she thought he was trying to molest her. Once they are out of town and into safety, they hope one day to carry on with fulfilling their shared dream of settling down on their own piece of land. Lennie's part of the dream, which he never tires of hearing George describe, is merely to have soft rabbits on the farm, which he can pet. George tries to keep Lennie out of trouble by telling him that if he gets into trouble he won't let him "tend them rabbits". *** At the ranch, the dream appears to become possible. Candy, the aged, one-handed ranch-hand, offers to put in his few hundred dollars with Lennie and George so that they can buy the house and land by the end of the month. Then, the dream crashes down when Lennie accidentally kills the young and attractive wife of Curley, the ranch owner's son, while trying to stroke her hair. A lynch mob led by Curley quickly gathers. George, now realizing that Lennie is doomed to a life of loneliness and despair like the rest of the migrant workers being of no realistic use to society and wanting to spare Lennie a slow, painful death at the hands of the vengeful and violent Curley, shoots Lennie in the back of the head before the mob can find him. The shot comes while Lennie is distracted by the dream of happiness, when he can finally tend the rabbits. - Wikipedia. Seller Inventory # 003609
