this is a great book! totally enthralling, it won't let you put it down. Just as you think "just one more sentence" you come across a whole new plot that you never expected, and again you can't put it down.

This is a wonderful book that allows you to read about something which is constantly occuring, yet we are not so aware of it. It teaches you to look at something in another way, which I believe is the greatest lesson of all.

"Synopsis" by ,
Winner of the Newbery Medal

A New York Times Book Review Best of Children's Books

A National Book Award Nominee

"Taylor . . . writes not with rancor or bitterness of indignities, but with pride, strength, and respect for humanity."—The New York Times Book Review

Why is the land so important to Cassie's family? It takes the events of one turbulent year—the year of the night riders and the burnings, the year a white girl humiliates Cassie in public simply because she's black—to show Cassie that having a place of their own is the Logan family's lifeblood. It is the land that gives the Logans their courage and pride—no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans possess something no one can take away.

"Synopsis" by ,
"The vivid story of a black family whose warm ties to each other and their land give them strength to defy rural Southern racism during the Depression. . . . Entirely through its own internal development, the novel shows the rich inner rewards of black pride, love, and independence despite the certainty of outer defeat." —Booklist (starred review)
