The Grapes of Wrath-Chapter 16
Transcript of The Grapes of Wrath-Chapter 16
Chapter 16 Summary: In the beginning of this chapter, the Joads and the Wilsons have now traveled for three days straight. Rose of Sharon tells Ma Joad about the plan she and Casy came up with. They plan to move to a town and live in a house there along with the new baby and Casy will study in the night so he learns how to manage his own store soon.This worries Ma Joad, because she does not want the family to split up. Once again, the Wilsons' car breaks down and Casy and Tom offer to help them by staying behind to repair it, but Ma Joad opposes this plan and refuses to go on without them. Both families then stay together and wait as Al and Tom go to a car lot in town to look for some auto parts. Setting: During the day and in the evening, by the highway, on the way to California.
