Cannery Row

John Steinbeck (by: Kendra Hopping)


Cannery Row takes place during the Great Depression in Monterey, California.


  • Lee Chong: owner of a grocery store
  • Mack and the boys: bums who live on Lee Chong's property
  • Doc: very liked doctor in Monterey that Mack and the boys throw a party for
  • Dora: a woman in Montery, could be the female Doc, that runs an illegal shop but gives $50 to the police everytime someone donates $1. She is very kind and does a lot to help out her small community to keep the, healthy and safe


Mack and the boys decide to throw Doc a party, in his home, for being so kind and generous to the community. When Doc arrives home later than planned the night of the party, his house is empty but totally trashed. So Mack and the boys end up throwing another party for Doc and it actually goes as planned.


My favorite part was the fact that Mack and the boys paided for the party by finding frogs and selling them.
