In its heyday, the United Farm Workers was an embodiment of its slogan Yes, we can-in the form ˇSí, 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.
