Sounder is no beauty. But as a coon dog, this loyal mongrel with his cavernous bark is unmatched. When the African American sharecropper who has raised Sounder from a pup is hauled off to jail for stealing a hog, his family must suffer their humiliation and crushing loss with no recourse. To make matters worse, in the fracas, Sounder is shot and disappears. The eventual return of a tattered and emaciated Sounder doesn't change the fact that the sharecropper's oldest son is forced to take on man's work to help support the family. His transition to adulthood is paved by the rocks and taunts hurled at him by convicts and guards as he searches for his father. But along this rough road he ultimately finds salvation as well.

"This is the story of a coon dog, Sounder, and his devotion to his master. It is also the story of humans: the father, a black sharecropper, who must steal to feed his children, the timid mother fighting for survival, and the son who grows to maturity through his father's prison term and the devotion of Sounder." --Best Sellers
