This is my absolute favorite book from childhood. I read it in third grade, and again and again after that and I have never forgotten it.

Powerful messages about rising above the injustices in life and the importance of family.

The second book in the series, "Let the Circle Be Unbroken", is excellent as well.

I read this book as an adolescent and never forgot it. A coming of age novel that deals very effectively with the complex issue of racism and prejudice.

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 is 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 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.

From the back cover: This is a story of physical survival, but more important, it is a story of the survival of the human spirit. This is Cassie's story-- Cassie Logan, a girl raised by a family determined not to surrender their independence or their humanity simply because they are black. Cassie has grown up protected, strong, and so far, unaware that any white person could consider her inferior-- or force her to be untrue to herself. It takes the events of one turbulent year to turn her safe world upside down.

Great kids book - Newberry and many other awards. My kids really enjoyed it - the story of a girl named Cassie and her family enduring the depression and coping up with racism.

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.

This book opens eyes to race relations in earlier times. Good for young readers to learn about the past prejudices and great for older readers as well.....to keep their eyes & minds open to prejudices. A keeper!
