9780060935481: Sounder (Perennial Classics)

Set in the deep South, this is a tale about the courage and love that bind a black sharecropping family together despite extreme prejudice and inhumanity from the outside world. Sounder cannot save his master - a father who is driven to steal for his hungry wife and children - from the sheriff's posse. Nor can he save him from fate, which pursues both master and dog, mauling each of them in it's cruel, impersonal jaws, while the boy who loves the two of them is forced to bear his sorrow like a man. The story burns with indignation. It climbs to moments of nobility and resignation that return, in memory, like a final benediction.
