At Season's End is a story of a migrant family. They have traveled from one season to the next season picking fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Sally (Sal),her brother Tim,and her parents moved from one place to another place just trying to find work and to live off whatever they make during the Great Depression.

It also strange to see life through their eyes. People who settle down in one place are called respectable yet Sal and her family found that some are just plain hypocrites to help one another. The migrant families helped each other out as much as they can.

Each season, Sal hoped to see Ben, a boy that she has became friend with. One season, tragedy hit both her brother Tim and Sal. They have to survive together and still tried to make it back to Ben at Mt. Hood.

This book gives a very good description of the life a migrant worker goes through and how the local people see them. It is also about survival. Each migrant worker and family depend on each other to survive. This book would be perfect for anyone who wants to know about the Great Depression and the life of the migrant family.
