This is a great story about a black family's struggle in the 1930's in the Southern USA. I used the narrative (with the paperback books) in my middle school class (for 2 years now) and the students love it. Most of them have very limited knowledge of the Civil Rights struggle in America. We used the book along with speeches by JFK and ML King, Jr and segments of the Harriett Tubman story to survey slavery and civil rights in the United States. The narrarator does an excellent job telling this story. My students couldn't wait to get to the end, and then they wanted to read the next book in the Mildred Taylor collection!

Any additional comments?
The chapters are completely off with the book. I use the audiobook for my reading class, and while the audiobook says chapter one, we were at the end of chapter 2. NOT TEACHER-FRIENDLY!

I read and enjoyed this book so much. I actually went back in time and. Felt every feeling and emotion. I also bought a version for my grand Son another way to teach our history’.
I liked how the book is so descriptive and very realistic. Also the audiobook creates a great atmosphere and makes you more tense, happy, sad and scared of events in the book.
I would recommend this to 12 year old readers who are good at underetanding complex meanings and storylines.
I rated this 5 stars because there is ABSOLUTELY nothing bad about it. Even though the n word is used, kt has to be, because thats what people were called in those days
