‘Then the boy thought he heard another familiar sound, a faint whine on the cabin porch . . . ‘ Sounder is a big, loyal hunting dog with a bark that echoes louder than any other farm dog’s in the whole of Louisiana. But his loving family is so poor that the father is forced to steal food. When his master is arrested for his crimes, Sounder – wounded in the scuffle – also goes missing. Finally, after many months, Sounder reappears, but he is no longer the great, booming dog that he once was . . . Sounder is an award-winning story of poverty, prejudice, hope and survival.
