Description
THE POWERFUL NEWBERY AWARD-WINNING CLASSIC A landmark in childrens literature, winner of the 1970 Newbery Medal, and the basis of an acclaimed film, Soundertraces the keen sorrow and the abiding faith of a poor African-American boy in the 19th-century South. The boys life is changed forever when his father is caught stealing a ham to feed his starving family. His dog, Sounder, is wounded in the incident and waits faithfully for his master to come home. Read by Avery Brooks, this timeless and compelling parable will move listeners of all ages. Blues riffs and Brookss soulful singing set the tone and enhance the tale. This bittersweet saga, richly told by Brooks, will remain in listeners hearts and minds long after the final line is heard. AudioFile
