The time period represented in Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry is the mid 1930's around the time of the Great Depression. This is important because most people were living very poorly and unlike most families, the Logan's were lucky enough to own their own land, something that was very rare in those days. The Logan family were a African-American family living in Mississippi where they had to endure racism and poverty daily. The values emphasized in this book were family unity, pride for yourself and family, honesty and humanitarianism. For example, The narrator Cassie tell us how her father drove the point home that the land they owned was to stand for their resolve as well as their strength. As long as they owed this land, they would be OK and that it didn't matter what the "White" man did to try and take their land, the Logan's were not going anywhere. Cassie provided great details about her surroundings such as the dirt roads, the old trucks, the segregated schools, and other families sharecropping to make a living. Mildred D. Taylor controls the story by asking questions underneath the surface of the plot, which is another part of historical fiction. I believe she asks the reader if you would do the same thing to the road that the kids did to get that bus driver back? Would you go and tell people lies? Would you cheat if your mother was your teacher and had the answers at home? This gets students thinking about their moral compasses and provides deeper thinking on a social level. The characters in Roll of Thunder, had a big family that takes care of each other and they bring the reader into their lives. The story and narration has the reader feeling anticipation for their family members safe return from town on a rainy night where the "night rider" could catch them.Read more ›

We urgently needed the novel "Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry" for school. The pictured item matches the scholastic book club book that was handed out by my son's school. It is the first and possibly only item on Amazon with the correctly matched picture. What we received is a totally different workbook, it even looks entirely different. That received book is a workbook that accompanies the novel, not the novel itself. Now I have to go through the hassle of returning this item, waiting for a refund, verifying the refund is received, and running around to stores to find this book that we need by Monday morning. Ugh!

This is a study guide with puzzles and questions. This is not the book pictured. I am returning this and reporting it to amazon as this picture and review are misleading.

Buyers, be aware that this product is a study, NOT the actual book. The picture representing the product is incorrect. I bought this product for college but then realized I had made the wrong purchase when I received my order. I had to return the product and do some more shopping.
