Product Description

Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. In 1956m towards the end of Reverend John Ames's life, he begins a letter to his young son - an account of himself and his forebearers - on the subject of the tension between his father, an ardent pacifist, & his grandfather, whose pistol and bloody shirts, concealed in an army blanket, may be relics from the fight between the abolitionists and those settlers who wanted to vote Kansas into the Union as a slave state. And, he tells a story of the sacred bonds between fathers & sons, which are tested in his tender and strained relationship with his namesake, John Ames Boughton, a best friend's wayward son. 256p.
