The book is mainly set in Torgas County, a fictional place created by Steinbeck though it is remarkably similar to Salinas Valley, his birthplace. The county is a small valley filled with apple orchards and owned by a few rich men. 

The novel also takes place during the Great Depression, which is mainly why the novel focuses so heavily on worker's rights.
