Sounder WILLIAM H. ARMSTRONG To Kip, Dave, and Mary A man keeps, like his love, his courage dark. There were no radios or television sets, so when our lessons were finished he told us stories. Antoine de Saint Exupéry Contents Cover Title Page Author’s Note. His stories came from Aesop, the Old Testament, Homer, and history. There was a lasting, magnificent intoxication about the man that has remained after half a century.

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.
This was one of my favorite books as a child. Along with Where The Red Fern Grows. Wanted to make sure my son had a chance to read it since it isn't required reading at school. Beautifully written and pulls at the heart strings.

I recommend this novel to thoughtful, discerning readers of all ages.
This is a sad tale. An easy and quick book to read. It makes it easy to sympathize with the poor in the South back then. My heart ached for the boy and the dog.
I use this in my 5th grade classroom while we read along in the book. The narration is perfect. It's Avery Brooks, the actor who played Hawk on "Spencer for Hire." The kids love it.
I liked the book a lot - it is a touching although heartbreaking story. My 8 year old son, for whom I bought the book, was not crazy about it. I think the story might be a little depressing for young children. I watched the movie after reading the book - the book is much better than the movie.
Great book, every kid in school should have to read this to understand the life of a black sharecroppers family after the Civil War.
Purchased for myself. I saw the movie, but wanted to own a piece of African American history.
I got this book, along with a couple of others for my 10 year old grandson. He was thrilled to get books for Christmas! This book was recommended by his uncle. ( my son) to me, as he had read it in grade school and liked it!
