The Land
The Land | Mildred D. Taylor
2 posts | 11 read | 12 to read
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.

This is the first of Mildred D. Taylor‘s Logan Family series. I read Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry last year and I was so affected not only by the story, but by Ms. Taylor‘s words about it, that I decided to read the rest of the series. These stories have to be read, especially by folks like me. #BookspinBingo #1 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART #SERIES2022 #LiterALLyBOOKish #Pantone2022ColourChallenge #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #Wintercosy

I read Mildred Taylor books when I was younger and fell in love with the Logan family. I decided to revisit the story when I saw this available from my library.

This book starts the Logan family story and gives the background information about how they obtain the land they all love so much. Wonderfully written book and I can't wait to continue on with the Logan family.
