While she and her older sisters are staying with their great-grandmother, ten-year-old Annie Rye learns about prejudice first hand when a local white girl causes Annie's sister to be unjustly punished. The adventures of a black tenant-farming family continue in this sequel to Down in the Piney Woods. Spending the summer on her great-grandmother Moriah's farm seems like a life in paradise to Annie Rye. Until, suddenly, she finds herself facing deep-seated prejudice and subject to unspoken rules when the lonely granddaughter of the wealthy white landowner offers Annie Rye friendship. Smothers's sometimes hilarious, often moving portrait of independent Annie Rye and her family brings to life rural Georgia before the civil-rights movement and resonates with a universal message of understanding and forgiveness
