In its heyday, the United Farm Workers was an embodiment of its slogan Yes, we can—in the form ¡Sí, Se Puede!—winning many labor victories, securing collective bargaining rights for farm workers, and becoming a major voice for the Latino community. Today, it is a mere shadow of its former self. Trampling Out the Vintage is the authoritative account of the union’s rise and fall, a dramatic reappraisal of its controversial leader Cesar Chavez, and a vivid rendering of farm work and the farming world.
