Here's a little bit about the book "Sounder"…
It was first published in the 1960's and the story is about a black family living in the South. It tells of that family's hard times, a great coon dog named Sounder, and how they all pull together and survive what has been thrown their way in life.
Lovely piece of literature. I'd recommend it for anyone to read (teens, adults, or boys and girls 10 & up). I love the author's writing style… how the names of the people are never revealed--you only know Sounder's name. It seems to keep the other characters in a slight obscurity, as if there is a shadow over their face and you cannot see the person… but yet, you know everything about them. I like how the author did that for this book.
Superb, and excellent! I will be sure to read "Sounder" again someday.
