Transcript of Chapter 28- Grapes Of Wrath

Chapter 28 Summary Ma and the family finally have a decent place to live in, at
the boxcar camp. They are working for the season picking
cotton and Ma finally feels like something good has come from it
all. The family takes a shopping trip, and Ruthie and Winfield
gets a whole box of Cracker Jacks each. Ruthie ended up saving
some of her box for later on, and some kids ended up trying to take
her box. She gets into a fight with some big girl, and tells her that her
brother could lick the girls brother because her brother has killed
someone and is hiding. When Ma finds this out she packs up a little dinner
and goes to find Tom to tell him Ruthie has told someone about him
in hiding. Tom and Ma decide its best for Tom to leave and go a couple
hundred miles away. On the way home, some guy stops Ma and asks her if
she knows anyone who would want to pick cotton for him in the morning.

of the other families, and pick cotton. Rose of Sharon ends up getting too cold

the stars" (Steinbeck 567).
