The Learning Tree
The story, set in Kansas during the 1920s, covers less than a year in the life of a black teenager and documents the veritable deluge of events that force him into sudden manhood. The family relationships and enmities, the fears, frustrations, and ambitions of the black teenager in small-town America are explored with a strong statement about human values.
