Mildred D. Taylor's Newbery Award-winning masterpiece with an introduction written and read by Jacqueline Woodson, just in time for its 40th Anniversary!
Set in Mississippi at the height of the Depression, this is the story of one family's struggle to maintain their integrity, pride, and independence in the face of racism and social injustice. And it is also 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.

"Recorded Books' commitment to producing outstanding classics for young people has never been more obvious than in this recording of one of the best books ever to win the Newbery Award. The inspiring story of the Logan family, as told by young Cassie, records the struggle of a black family in 1933 Mississippi to survive--with dignity--over-whelming threats of economic disaster and racial violence. Lynne Thigpen, one of the welcome new African-American narrators, is so convincing that it could be Cassie herself telling what happened. Also from Recorded Books: the sequel, Let The Circle Be Unbroken. J.C. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
