The grapes of wrath by John Ford ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in English and held by 2,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Ford's "The Grapes of Wrath" is a left-wing parable, directed by a right-wing American director, about how a sharecropper's son, a barroom brawler, is converted into a union organizer. Tom Joad, paroled convict, returns to his family farm in Oklahoma, only to learn the Joads have been "tractored off the land" and are joining the desperate migration to California. The grand Westward movement of American settlement finds small shareholders forced off their land by bankers and big landholders. "The Grapes of Wrath" expresses the nation's rage about the Depression in poetic, Biblical terms, and shows half a nation with the economic rug pulled out from under it. The story--about the resiliency and courage of "the people"--Is built on a foundation of fear: Fear of losing jobs, land, and self-respect. To those who have felt that fear, have gone hungry or been homeless, it will never become dated, while today its sense of injustice is perhaps even more relevant

In 1789, the English ship H.M.S. Bounty begins a two-year mission. The ship travels to Tahiti to obtain breadfruit plants that will provide cheap food for slaves in the West Indies, the Bounty's final destination. The captain is William Bligh, a vicious taskmaster who doesn't flinch at giving two dozen lashes to any malcontent on board, for the most minor of infractions. The first mate is Lt. Fletcher Christian, who despises Bligh but has somehow earned the captain's respect. Bligh makes life miserable for the crew, and after the Bounty leaves Tahiti for the West Indies, Bligh orders the ship's doctor, a dying man, to stand on deck despite his illness. The doctor dies, which begins a chain reaction of anger leading to Christian leading a mutiny against Bligh
