Beyond The Fields: Sanger Stories

Fairmont School


What lies beyond the fields of Sanger, California? Is it a world of opportunity or a bleak future without hope? Whatever the answer may have been before they wrote this book, the young authors of Fairmont School have reclaimed the power to mold their own lives as they see fit. By finding their voice and using it to reflect on their personal circumstances, their funds of knowledge, and their immediate surroundings, these eighth graders have begun to explore and shape their identities as readers, writers, and agents of social change.
Their stories are powerful, moving, and eloquent. They give us an honest glimpse into the rich tapestry of experience and hope that until now lay hidden in their hearts and minds, just beyond the fields.
