I read this book for a class I was taking on Children's Literature. It's an excellent book, well worth reading many times over. It's a story about love, family, hope and the capacity for human beings to retain their sense of pride despite all the ills of the world.

I remember reading this book when I was a little girl I loved it. Very heartwarming and heartwrenching at the same time. It gives you insight of what it was like living in the times of segregation being Black. There are 2 more books in this family. I would recommend it for young readers.

It takes the events of one turbulent year - the year of the night riders and 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 in the Logan family's lifeblood. It is the land that gives the Logans their courage and pride - no matter how others may degrade them.

This is a powerful book in the Mildred D. Taylor series about the Logan family. Set during the Depression, this is a vivid story forthrightly describing racism and courage. It is recommended for ages 10 and up.

From Amazon.com:
In all Mildred D. Taylor's unforgettable novels she recounts "not only the joy of growing up in a large and supportive family, but my own feelings of being faced with segregation and bigotry." Her Newbery Medal-winning Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry tells the story of one African American family, fighting to stay together and strong in the face of brutal racist attacks, illness, poverty, and betrayal in the Deep South of the 1930s. Nine-year-old Cassie Logan, growing up protected by her loving family, has never had reason to suspect that any white person could consider her inferior or wish her harm. But during the course of one devastating year when her community begins to be ripped apart by angry night riders threatening African Americans, she and her three brothers come to understand why the land they own means so much to their Papa. "Look out there, Cassie girl. All that belongs to you. You ain't never had to live on nobody's place but your own and long as I live and the family survives, you'll never have to. That's important. You may not understand that now but one day you will. Then you'll see."
