    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 something no one can take away.

    Overall

    This is a great story about a black family's struggle in the 1930's in the Southern USA. I used the narrative (with the paperback books) in my middle school class (for 2 years now) and the students love it. Most of them have very limited knowledge of the Civil Rights struggle in America. We used the book along with speeches by JFK and ML King, Jr and segments of the Harriett Tubman story to survey slavery and civil rights in the United States. The narrarator does an excellent job telling this story. My students couldn't wait to get to the end, and then they wanted to read the next book in the Mildred Taylor collection!
