This short novel is unflinching and devastating and well worth it. Someday I hope to have read all of Taylor's works. ( )

This historical fiction story takes place in Mississippi in the 1930s in a small community. Jeremy Simms watches from the porch of the general store as the weekly bus from Jackson comes through his town. There are African American neighbors who board the bus, along with white folks. Soon the African Americans are forced off the bus due to too few seats for all the white folks. Minutes later, tragedy strikes which brings the community together in a way that no one imagined. ( )

I loved the book Mississippi Bridge. It told the story from a young, white boys point of view. He knows about racism and sees his frustration with his dad ( )

A short, but insightful read about old segregation practices in Mississippi. This tale of Josias and his family being kicked off the bus for a white family to ride because the bus was full shows that not all bad things that happen are worth fighting over. Josias wanted to argue, but was thrown off the bus which then crashed off the local bridge killing all those aboard. He then realized that his life was spared by not being on that bus. Josias saying, "Onliest thing I know is the good book, it say the Lord He work in mighty mysterious ways." We should all take a lesson to heart from this book in how we treat others. ( )

Mississippi Bridge is a short novella that takes place before the events in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. It is a Logan Family Saga book, however, it is told from the perspective of Jeremy, a white boy in the Logan's community. The story takes place all in over afternoon as a large group of people want to take the bus that comes through town infrequently. Since more people want to take the bus than can fit on the bus, the African-Americans are told to get off the bus. Jeremy witnesses the racist attitudes of the whites during this exchange and feels sympahty for the blacks, but is powerless to make any type of change.
Jeremy is an important character in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry but it is difficult to understand his motivations. This story gives background into Jeremy's character.
