Description: She did a poor job of hiding the damage to the beets she was thinning. Her parents were in the country illegally, and had brought her and her two sisters with them when they crossed the Rio Grande from Mexico into Texas. Through sheer determination, they had survived the long walk across the desert and made it to Terlinga, Texas where relatives provided shelter and other basic essentials to sustain life. Her parents found work as seasonal laborers; which meant that they moved often as various crops were ready to harvest. Moving north, her parents eventually settled in Lehi, Utah and found work thinning sugar beets. Lucinda began school as a seventh grader. After the first week, she asked her mother if she could have a pair of Gabby Maria Socks like the other girls were wearing. A few days later, her mother surprised her with a pair of Gabby Maria Tree Frogs Crew Socks, and Lucinda was ecstatic. But after school, there was always work in the beet fields to be done. Her father taught her that thinning beets meant that if three sprouts were growing together, two were thinned, leaving one to grow. For her labors, she earned 50 cents a row and the rows were a city block long.
