Wilma Elizabeth McDaniel's poems bear powerful witness to one of the nation's most dramatic sagas, the Dustbowl exodus of the 1930's Depression era, and chronicle the lives of workers in California's hot Central Valley towns over the decades. Born to an Oklahoma sharecropping family, and part Cherokee, McDaniel began writing when she was eight, and has kept on through a lifetime of working on farms, even when poverty forced her to write on old envelopes and brown paper bags.

Wilma remained a farm laborer all her working life. She died at age 88, in 2007. Her story is not very different from thousands of others except that some time in her early teens, Wilma began writing poems. She wrote about family and friends and – that rare subject in American poetry – work. All kinds of work, from picking fruit to repairing old machinery to running a tiny store, all the occupations that keep small rural towns going. At some point, her poems began appearing in church newsletters and local papers.
