Sounder is a remarkable story, compassionate, powerfully moving, showing the qualities of dignity and endurance at their highest, in both man and beast. A memorable dog story, it is also the chronicle of a man, a woman, and a boy, equally hard to forget. . . . Sounder will be read for a long time to come. --Wall Street Journal
A timeless classic, winner of the John Newberry Medal, and the basis of an acclaimed film, Sounder is a novel that tells of the courage and love that binds a Black family together despite the extreme prejudice and inhumanity it faces in the Deep South.
