About the Author
Mildred D. Taylor’s award-winning books for children are largely based on family stories that describe the struggles of friends and relatives living in a racist culture. Her second book, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, won the Newbery Medal in 1977 and quickly became a middle-grade classic. She has continued her series about the Logan family, most recently publishing The Land.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am in 6th grade, and I thought the book was great. It did teach me about some things I already new about, but it really got me thinking on how the 'whites' treated the 'blacks.' I thought it was a really great book to read. I reccomend it to any one to read, except 3rd grade and under.
