Miriam Pawel is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who spent 25 years reporting and editing for Newsday and the Los Angeles Times. Returning to reporting in her adopted home of California, she delved into agriculture, one of the state’s largest yet least examined industries, with a four-part series on the United Farm Workers, which led to this book. She left The Times in 2006 to write “The Union of Their Dreams,” supported in part by a fellowship from the Alicia Patterson Foundation. She traces her passion for piecing together the past back to her undergraduate days at Harvard University, where she majored in Classics. A native of Great Neck, N.Y., she now lives in Pasadena
