I’m George Milton, and I’ve been working as a migrant ranch worker during the Great Depression. I’ve been travelling with my friend Lennie for a while now, and we’ve been through a lot together.
Lennie’s a big guy, but he has a childlike innocence. He doesn’t understand his strength, which sometimes gets us into trouble. I look out for him like a big brother or a parent.
I’m not the biggest or the most muscular guy on the ranch, but I’m intelligent and quick-witted. I can talk out of a situation before it gets out of hand. But when push comes to shove, I’m not afraid to stand up for myself or Lennie.
I’ve got big dreams too. I want to own my own piece of land one day, where Lennie and I can live off the fat of the land and not have to worry about working for anyone else. It’s a long shot, but I believe it’s possible if we keep working hard and keep our heads down.
All in all, I’m a loyal friend and a hard worker. I may not be the most glamorous guy on the ranch, but I know what I want and am not afraid to go after it.
