Summary Tom Joad, a paroled convict, returns to his family farm in the Oklahoma only to learn that the Joads have been forced off their land by dust storms and crop failures, and are joining other displaced families all migrating to California for work and a better life. After a grueling and dangerous trip, they arrive at a terrible migrant camp, full of starving families and surrounded by armed guards. Because of the terrible working conditions, some of the workers organize a strike. Tom attends a secret meeting of the strikers, which is discovered by the guards. As Tom tries to defend a friend from the attack, he inadvertently kills a guard and realizes he has to leave the family. He vows to continue fighting for social reform, and Ma Joad declares her intent to keep the family strong and carry on.
