I would honestly like to see Cassie get married to Moe!! Or at least court him for a while to see how that goes! But, by judging the way she acted around him at the train station made me believe that she was all in for Solomon. I mean he seems like a great guy and all, but I love Moe. We are just about finished reading Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry in class. Well, I finished it, read Let The Circle be Unbroken, and also read The Road to Memphis before we even were finished with it in class! I for one, would ABSOLUTLY LOVE to read the sequel to The Road to Memphis!!! So Ms. Taylor, you have A LOT of fans who would be estatic to have a perfect end to the Logan family saga!!!!

I think that Roll of Thunder would be okay to have your child read. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head that's "bad" in it would be the n-word. But that is in there to show what the South was like back then. It's in there to prove a point. That's all I can think of right now.

For more information about Mildred D Taylor, take a look at my biography of her: PRESENTING MILDRED D TAYLOR. My newest book is for teachers: TEACHING THE SELECTED WORKS OF MILDRED D TAYLOR. There's a free online chapter at Heinemann's website that discusses teaching her shorter books.

The book Roll of Thunder is an awesome read. I think every kid should read it.

My child came home today from school with a permission slip to read a book that has some pretty strong language in it. The book Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry is offered as an alternative. I just want to check in to find out if there is any language in that book that may be offensive. (Cuss words, the Lord's name in vain, etc.)

I get your email from people who think I am you because we have the same name. What is your official email address so I can let people know. Thanks,
Mildred M. Taylor
PS When I was a kid, I remember reading your book never dreaming that my last name would one day be Taylor too (smile)

Ruth, "The Well" is about David/Papa and takes place in about 1910. "Mississippi Bridge" takes place in about 1932. "The Gold Cadillac" isn't actually part of the Logan series but it takes place, I think, in the 1950's. I haven't read that one in a while. "The Friendship" takes place in about 1930-33. "Song of the Trees" is the first book and I think that it takes place in 1930 or around there close.
