The Grapes of Wrath
I believe chapter 12 is a very important chapter in this book. It is a short chapter but I believe it foreshadows the trouble the Joad's are going to face. "This is a free country. Fella can go where he wants. That's what you think! Ever hear of the border patrol on the California line? Police from Los Angeles--stopped you bastards, turned you back. Says, if you can't buy no real estate we don't want you." Even though this is a chapter that doesn't directly involve the Joad's I believe it gives us an insight on what to expect when and if they actually get to California.
