Judy's Journey

Lois Lenski published Judy’s Journey in 1947 as part of her Regional series. It is set in the South and along the East Coast. It is a depiction of Judy and her family, who are first sharecroppers down South, then migrant workers. Finally, the family travels all up the East Coast to follow the crops. It provides an unmatched look into the hard lives of migrant workers in the South.
