About the Author

Alfred Lewis (1902—1977), born on the mid-Atlantic island of Flores, immigrated to California in 1922. Having learned English only after arriving in America, he went on to study law and became a municipal judge in the San Joaquin Valley. Lewis was the first Portuguese-American writing from an ethnic perspective to claim the attention of the general reading public. He is the author of Sixty Acres and a Barn: A Novel.
