Gary Soto: Storyteller from the Barrio

Gary Soto came from a hard background by anyone's reckoning. His young father died in an industrial accident when Gary was only five years old.

All through school, he and his family worked at whatever jobs they could get, including picking fruits as migrant laborers.
