With the land to hold them together, nothing can tear the Logans apart.

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 courage and pride, for no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans possess soemthing no one can take away.

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

"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)

  • Fantastic Newbery Gold Medal Book

    This is a wonderful book, full of imagery, sensory language, etc. I teach intellectually gifted elementary students, and I use this book with my 5th graders. We just finished the book this week, and they all loved it, as all the students in previous years have also.
