First draft, original typescript for an unpublished and unproduced screenplay about migrant farmworkers in the San Joaquin Valley of California. A fictional treatment exploring some of the labor issues Matthiessen explored in his sojourns with Cesar Chavez and his 1969 nonfiction book Sal Si Puedes. 86 typescript pages, with a duplicate final page containing two holographic corrections by Matthiessen and handwritten delivery instructions to his Hollywood agent. Together with a brief handwritten note two decades later about the possibility that the screen-play might still be optioned. This screenplay is not mentioned in any of the Matthiessen bibliographies nor any of his biographical annotations in other works.
