Description

This is story of Loyal Blood, a man who spends a lifetime on the run from a crime so terrible that it renders him forever incapable of touching a woman.The odyssey begins on a freezing Vermont hillside in 1944 and propels Blood across the American West for forty years.

Denied love and unable to settle, he lives a hundred different lives: mining gold, growing beans, hunting fossils, trapping, prospecting for uranium and ranching.

His only contact with his past is through a series of postcards he sends home - not realising that in his absence disaster has befallen his family, and their deep-rooted connection with the land has been severed with devastating consequences...`Postcards' was Annie Proulx's first novel, which received huge acclaim and marked the launch of an outstanding literary career.

Her works include short story collections `Bad Dirt', `Close Range' (featuring `Brokeback Mountain') and novels such as `The Shipping News' and `Accordion Crimes'.
