A landmark in children's literature, winner of the 1970 Newbery Medal, and the basis of an acclaimed film, Sounder traces the keen sorrow and the abiding faith of a poor African-American boy in the 19th-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. Download and start listening now!

    " The style of this book is very similar to Armstrong Sperry's Call it Courage which is also a Newberry Winner. I don't care for this style. The characters are unnamed - other than the dog. The boy, the mother, the father - etc. It makes me feel emotionally disconnected from the story. "
