And Then It Happened
The book begins with the image of the father standing on the porch, petting Sounder. The boy, his son, asks the man how he got Sounder, and the father explains that Sounder came to him on the road as a pup. The boy loves Sounder, especially now that he does not go to school. The walk is too far—eight miles each way—and, in the winter, is much too cold. The boy thinks about what a great hunting dog Sounder is and how the dog could shake a possum dead from a tree without even puncturing its skin.
