**From the back cover**
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.
"Taylor....writes not with rancor or bitterness or indignities, but with pride, strentgh, and respect for humanity."-The New York Times Book Review
