Summary

The Powerful Newbery Award-Winning Classic

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.

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.

A Must Read May 26, 2011
by
This textbook takes place in the South a long time ago. It is about a poor family of farmers. More importantly, I feel this story tells about courage and determination during hard times. This was great and you should read this textbook and find out what happens. It's a masterpiece in children's literature. This is a must read for middle and upper graders. It is a fine read-aloud textbook for parents and teachers. I'm very happy to deal with ecampus. The textbook looks as if it is new and the price was good. Thanks.
