 About the Book 

In all Mildred D. Taylors 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 CryMoreIn all Mildred D. Taylors 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 aint never had to live on nobodys place but your own and long as I live and the family survives, youll never have to. Thats important. You may not understand that now but one day you will. Then youll see. Twenty-five years after it was first published, this special anniversary edition of the classic strikes as deep and powerful a note as ever. Taylors vivid portrayal of ugly racism and the poignancy of Cassies bewilderment and gradual toughening against social injustice and the men and women who perpetuate it, will remain with readers forever. Two award-winning sequels, Let the Circle Be Unbroken and The Road to Memphis, and a long-awaited prequel, The Land, continue the profoundly moving tale of the Logan family.
