Sounder (Perennial Classics)

Sounder (Perennial Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 bind a black family together despite the extreme prejudice and inhumanity it faces in the Deep South.

Synopsis:

Sounder cannot save his master--a father driven to steal for his hungry family--from the sheriff's posse, or from the cruel fate that awaits both of them. The man's young son must watch the story unfold helplessly and is forced to bear his sorrow like a man.
