** Guthrie later said he'd written the song because the real-life Joads couldn't afford to buy the book or even to see the movie.

A 1939 novel by Creator/JohnSteinbeck, winner of the 1940 UsefulNotes/PulitzerPrize. The book makes a strong political statement (of the social liberal kind), and is pretty much the antithesis of anything by Creator/AynRand. The story follows the Joads, a poor family from Oklahoma [[TheGreatDepression hit by the dust bowl]] that travel all the way to UsefulNotes/{{California}} (losing the grandparents along the way) to find jobs on farms. Sadly, they discover that work conditions are horrid and farms are overpopulated and people are paid poorly. The content and themes of ''The Grapes of Wrath'' made it very controversial in its day, and it is still divisive today. What isn't denied is that the novel was extremely influential.
