Description-
  • This searing and inspiring prequel to Roll Of Thunder, Hear My Cry is the story of Cassie Logan's grandfather. Paul-Edward is the son of a white father and a half-black, half-Indian mother. His father raises him almost as if he was white, but when it counts, he's treated as a black man with racist spite and hatred. He cannot fit into either the black world or the white world. The one thing that Paul-Edward loves is the land, and he spends the rest of his life trying to own land of his own. He takes on a variety of jobs, and is brutally cheated and mistreated by his white employers, but he eventually succeeds, at great personal and financial cost, in owning his own patch of land.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine The acclaim for ROLL OF THUNDER, HEAR MY CRY precedes this new prequel to the Logan family saga, and Mildred Taylor won the 2002 Coretta Scott King Author Award for THE LAND. We meet Cassie Logan's grandfather, Paul-Edward Logan, in Georgia just after the Civil War. Ruben Santiago-Hudson crafts fluid portraits of Paul-Edward, his friend, Mitchell, and the memorable characters who surround the struggle for the precious acres of land Paul-Edward is eventually able to buy. Santiago-Hudson brings the Southern dialects alive for listeners and unfolds this rich story with astute understanding and compassion. Listen and discuss this inspiring audiobook with family and young people. It's a powerful, evergreen story that furthers our understanding of American history. R.F.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2002 Coretta Scott King Author Award and YALSA Selection (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
