Harvesting Hope is an ALA Notable book. As a young boy, Cesar lived happily on his family's ranch in Arizona. But when a severe drought lost them the entire crop, his family also lost their home. With thousands of other unlucky families, the Chavez's moved to California where they lived in poverty and worked as migrant workers. It bothered Cesar greatly that the workers were treated like slaves by the landowners. So he organized the workers and marched to the state capital in protest.

About the Narrator

Robert Ramirez came to audiobook narration fresh from his MFA in classical theater. Initially answering a casting call for a narrator who spoke Spanish, Robert has used his Mexican-American background to imbue authentic flavor and dialogue in audio titles. His success with six young adult novels by Gary Soto has gotten our attention, including Taking Sides and Buried Onion. His powerful command of language and rich voice reflect his interest in dialects. In his recent performance of Beast by Donna Jo Napoli, a modern fable of “Beauty and the Beast” set in Persia, Robert jumped at the chance to add Farsi and Arabic to his repertoire. We hope to hear Robert in different audiobook venues in coming months.
