Set in the Great Depression in the US, two migrant ranch workers encounter trouble on a farm. Dyslexia-friendly edition.
Streetwise George and his big, childlike friend Lennie are drifters, searching for work in the fields and valleys of California. They have nothing except the clothes on their back, and a hope that one day they'll find a place of their own and live the American dream.
But dreams come at a price. Gentle giant Lennie doesn't know his own strength, and when they find work at a ranch he gets into trouble with the boss' daughter-in-law.
Trouble so bad that even his protector George may not be able to save him.
A superb story of power and beauty, critically acclaimed across the world and now available in an accessible format for all readers.
