Item description for The Well : David's Story by Mildred D. Taylor...

When the drought hits their community, the Logan family welcomes all their neighbors to use their well, yet despite their generosity, Charlie Simms continues to insult the two young Logan boys because they are black, and tension begins to mount. Reprint.

Publishers Description
During a drought, the Logan family shares their well water with all their neighbors, black and white alike. But David and Hammer find it hard to share with Charlie Simms, who torments them because they are black. Hammer's pride and Charlie's meanness are a dangerous mixture, and tensions build and build. Narrated by young David Logan, Cassie's father in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, this extraordinary story is filled with characters and events so real that they're unforgettable.

"Taylor has used her gift for storytelling and skillful characterization to craft a brief but compelling novel about prejudice and the saving power of human dignity." -- "School Library Journal," starred review

This Book Is Da Bomb  Feb 7, 2007
This book was a very good book, i think the book could be a little bit longer, but it was a good book.
The well has some bad language so i would not recomend this book for youngsters. It isbetter for older kids.
realy GOOD book  Feb 2, 2007
This book is realy good but not good for young ages. It has violence and bad language. It shows how black people weretreated by whites, and it makes you angry but you keep turning the pages. If you get this book you will like it.
Really good book...  Feb 1, 2007
This book is good if you want to know more about how black people were treated. It has some bad language and it will make you mad but you keep reading.
the well  Jan 31, 2007
i thought this book was great! it had a lot of action in it. I would not recomend this book for people that are young, beause it has a lot of bad language in it. But i would recomnend it for people 11 and older. Their is a fight between a black and white kid. And if you would like to learn about what they did in the olden days to colored people then this would be a good book to read. the fight was started when Hammer and David come across a white kid. And the white kid knocks David down, and if you want to know the rest of the story you will have to read the book. =P
The Well  Jan 31, 2007
I thought it was a great book, it had a lot of action in it. I would recomend it for anybody but it has a lot of bad language in it so be carefull. There is a fight between a couple of black kids and a couple of white kids, in the end brains win over fists. The fight starts when a couple of white people think they are better than all black people, are they right or wrong? Read the book to find out. :)
