The Well takes place in Mississippi where segregation is everything. There is also a drought going on, and the only people with water are the Logans, who offer it willingly to anyone, which means black or white. The Simms Family has always been like enemies for the Logans. Even though the Logans have more land, and well water, the Simms¿s have one big thing against them: All of the Simms¿s are white, and that is their one up to the other family. The Simms boys always keep in mind what they have against the other kids, so they push around the Logans, Hammer and David. But one day, Hammer decides he is not going to take it anymore, and pushes right back. I did think this was a good novel. Some may look at it and comment amount the number of pages it has, but the message is really important, and it is good to see how much we take for granted these days and the people who worked hard to gain equality for everyone. I think a reader who has an interest in non-fiction stories about history would enjoy reading The Well: David¿s Story. Even though this certain time of person might like this book, I think anyone would because many people can appreciate what these real ¿ life people have been through for us. Overall, this novel was very well-written, and opened my eyes to what families like the Logans experienced. I hope to read more of Mildred D. Taylor¿s works that share her family¿s rich history.
