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 [Published: APR/MAY 02]
