The Wild Mustard Greens by C.W. Eagle is the poignant story of a boy who is the child of migrant workers. Zarco and his family have spent years traversing California, picking nature?s bounty wherever the work took them. As the Great Depression takes hold, and as the divide between the ?haves and the have-nots? deepens, life for such working families began to change dramatically. While the book?s theme is about a young laborer and his family as they follow the harvest from camp to camp, The Wild Mustard Greens is also a serious reminder as to just how easily a great democratic nation such as ours can become divided.
Charlie White-Eagle was born in Los Angeles, California in 1917 and, like the central character in his book, worked for years as a migrant child on farms throughout the state. After joining the U.S. Army in 1940, Eagle served in WWII in the Pacific Theatre and was then called to serve again in the Korean War. Under the G.I. Bill, the author studied at the University of California at Berkeley until he dropped out of school after being offered a job with the Bridge Department of California. He retired as an associate engineer after some thirty years of service. The father of three adult sons, Mr. Eagle and his wife Emma reside in San Diego.
