Product Description

More than a work of fiction, this is a story culled from Ms. Taylor's own family's life and it stands as an important record of an African-American experience from our country's complicated and not-so-distant past. Though fictionalized, the novel draws great strength from a foundation of real-life events - and yet, remarkably, its honest portrayal of harsh truths have lead some to seek to remove the book from the library shelves and school reading lists. Ms. Taylor eloquently addresses this important issue in her inspiring new forward for the anniversary edition. Translated into scores of languages, this monumental novel remains as meaningful and universal as when it was first published in 1976. Recommended for ages 10 and up. The 1977 Newbery Medal winner.

Publisher's Description

Winner of the 1977 Newbery Medal, this is a remarkably moving novel--one that has impressed the hearts and minds of millions of readers. Set in Mississippi at the height of the Depression, it is the story of one family's struggle to maintain their integrity, pride, and independence in the face of racism and social injustice. And, too, it is Cassie's story--Cassie Logan, an independent girl who discovers over the course of an important year why having land of their own is so crucial to the Logan family, even as she learns to draw strength from her own sense of dignity and self-respect.

"[A] vivid story.... Entirely through its own internal development, the novel shows the rich inner rewards of black pride, love, and independence." --Booklist (starred review)
