|Description||Following the Harvest tells the story of sixteen-year-old Will Haley, who journeys north in the summer of 1943 as a member of a wheat-harvesting crew. |
Traveling with his father, along with a hump-backed hired hand, a whiny truck driver and his pretty wife, two cousins from Mississippi, and his father’s best friend, Will makes his way from Vernon, Oklahoma, to Rhame, North Dakota. Not everyone will make the return trip to Oklahoma, and when an accident claims a crew member’s life, Will is forced to take charge and become mature beyond his years.
