JC Reads: M.C. Higgins the Great

AM The book is M.C. Higgins the Great by Virginia Hamilton. Mayo Cornelius Higgins sits on his gleaming, forty-foot steel pole, towering over his home on Sarah's Mountain. Stretched before him are rolling hills and shady valleys. Behind him lie the wounds of strip mining, including a mountain of rubble that may one day fall and bury his home. M.C. dreams of escape for himself and his family. This book, the rare winner of both the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award, tells of a young boy's fighting chance to save his family's home.
