All they're going to name You is the harrowing account of “the worst aircraft catastrophe in California’s history,” which claimed the lives of thirty-two passengers, together with twenty-eight Mexican citizens—farmworkers who have been being deported via the U.S. executive. Outraged that media experiences passed over in basic terms the names of the Mexican passengers, American folks icon Woody Guthrie penned a poem that went directly to develop into some of the most very important protest songs of the 20th century, “Plane break at Los Gatos (Deportee).” It was once an try and repair the honour of the nameless lives whose unidentified is still have been buried in an unmarked mass grave in California’s imperative Valley. for almost seven a long time, the song’s message will be carried on by way of the best artists of our time, together with Pete Seeger, Dolly Parton, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez, but the query posed in Guthrie’s lyrics, “Who are those buddies all scattered like dry leaves?” may stay unanswered—until now.

Combining years of painstaking investigative examine and masterful storytelling, award-winning writer Tim Z. Hernandez weaves an enthralling narrative from testimony, ancient documents, and eyewitness money owed, reconstructing the incident and the lives at the back of the mythical music. This singularly unique account pushes narrative limitations, whereas demanding perceptions of what it capability to be an immigrant in the US, yet extra importantly, it renders intimate images of the person souls who, regardless of social prestige, race, or nationality, shared a standard destiny one frigid morning in January 1948.
