La Bamba, California is very small town with a population that is just under two hundred people. In this small town, there was an auto repair shop, a bakery, a butcher, a grocery store, and a gas station. Other than the houses where the people lived, this was all that La Bamba consisted of. La Bamba was dependant on the crops of the local farmers to feed everybody. The farmers would haul in large amounts of different crops that would then be used to make the food that the people eat on a daily basis.
The first picture I chose to describe is the one that displays all fruits and vegetables. I chose this picture because it shows a variety of crops being sold at a farmers market. In the book Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman some of the people that come to plant their crops end up selling them or trading them. An example of this can be found on page 85 “The pumpkins were about the only color still left in the garden, and then the boy sold them all.” I chose this because it shows that all the other crops were already picked and sold, traded, or eaten.
Dr. Seth Holmes, who is an Assistant Professor of Public Health and Medical Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, was witness to the lives of a group of indigenous migrant farmworkers from the Triqui village of San Miguel in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico. Through participant observation as well as interviews with clinic staff, public health officials, farm employees, U.S. border agents, and residents of the farming areas, he paints a detailed picture of the true cost of fresh fruits and vegetables in this country. In Holmes’ account, by using the stories of real people, we learn that Triqui farmworkers deal with backbreaking work, racism, language barriers (most Triqui farmworkers understand little English or Spanish), and

Examples include dairy farming, raising beef cattle, and raising sheep for wool. In contrast, arable farming concentrates on crops rather than livestock. Finally, Mixed farming incorporates livestock and crops on a single farm.

For example, in modern day China, one of the places where the agricultural revolution took place independently of the rest of the world.

Authors Jacob Riis and James Agee are widely known for their ability to create a vision of the life experiences of impoverished people in specific times and areas in United States history. One of the most common situations poor people find themselves in is working under the control of a landowner or landlord. Chapter twelve of Jacob Riis’ How the Other Half Lives and James Agee’s Cotton Tenants both describe in detail the lives of poor working families who lives are heavily influenced by who they work for.
