Praise for Lettuce Wars:

Lettuce Wars does an outstanding, exceptional job of providing the reader with an inside, on-the-ground view of the industrial farm labor experience in California and elsewhere. Bruce Neuburger’s story is compelling and often spell-binding. This is surely one of the most important contributions to the social justice literature exposing farmworker injustice at all levels.”—Dr. Ann López, Executive Director, Center for Farmworker Families; author, The Farmworkers’ Journey

“In these stirring pages you will find exquisite descriptions of the work, lovely accounts of the people who do it, and a unique view of farm worker politics, all delivered in straight forward, good humored prose. Most of all, Neuburger reminds us of what it felt like to be young and believe in Revolution.”—Frank Bardacke, author, Trampling Out the Vintage: Cesar Chavez and the Two Souls of the UFW
