Chapter 13, like every chapter, is packed full of information to delve into about the book. In Chapter 13, Grampa Joad is not feeling well. The Joads and their crew come across a tent with people camping out. Tom approaches them and the Wilsons welcome them in with open arms. The Wilsons offer Grampa their tent to rest.
