Description
A stunning repackage of a companion to Mildred D. Taylor's Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry , with cover art by two-time Caldecott Honor Award winner Kadir Nelson! The son of a prosperous landowner and a former slave, Paul-Edward Logan is unlike any other boy he knows. His white father has acknowledged him and raised him openly-something unusual in post-Civil War Georgia. But as he grows into a man he learns that life for someone like him is not easy. Black people distrust him because he looks white. White people discriminate against him when they learn of his black heritage. Even within his own family he faces betrayal and degradation. So at the age of fourteen, he sets out toward the only dream he has ever had: to find land every bit as good as his father's, and make it his own. Once again inspired by her own history, Ms. Taylor brings truth and power to the newest addition to the award-winning Logan family stories. * "Readers...will grab this and be astonished by its powerful story."-- Booklist , starred review * "Taylor's gift for combining history and storytelling is as evident here as in her other stories about the Logan family."-- Publishers Weekly , starred review
