The setting of this renowned novel is in Mississippi during the Great Depression. It tells the story of the Logan family, an independent, hard-working African-American family, who are locked in a desperate struggle to survive during hard times and try to keep the 400 acre farm passed down to them by Grandpa Logan. The story is told through the eyes of 10-year-old Cassie who witnesses segregation, lynch mobs, and the social and economic hardships endured by the black people of the area. A very compelling novel that deals with racism and its effects on people.
