Back Cover: 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 -- no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans possess something no one can take away.
I'm giving this to my daughter now for her collection of Newbery Award winning books.
