This book exposes you to what Mississippi was back then. I enjoyed reading this book. It was a required book in my 6th grade class and I'm glad it was. I've read this book a couple times and I greatly enjoyed it. After reading this book, Mildred D. Taylor became one of my favorite author's and I picked up The Land(which is the prequel). It as well is a wonderful book. I highly recommend this book.
