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.
Read all the books about the Logan family: The Land; The Well: David's Story; Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry; Mississippi Bridge; The Frienship; Let the Circle Be Unbroken; and The Road to Memphis.
