Synopsis:

Sounder, a landmark in children's literature,traces the keen sorrow and the abiding faith of a poor African-American boy in the nineteenth-century South. The boy's father is a sharecropper, struggling to feed his family in hard times. Night after night, he and his great coon dog, Sounder, return to the cabin empty-handed. Then, one morning, almost like a miracle, a sweet-smelling ham is cooking in the family's kitchen. At last the family will have a good meal. But that night, an angry sheriff and his deputies come, and the boy's life will never be the same.


Review:

School Library Journal

Review:
