A New York Times Bestseller
A PEN/Hemingway Award-winning Author

In 1956, towards the end of Reverend John Ames's life, he begins a letter to his young son, an account of himself and his forbears. The son of an Iowa preacher and the grandson of a minister who, as a young man in Maine, saw a vision of Christ bound in chains and came west to Kansas to fight for abolition, Reverend Ames writes to his son about the tension between his father - an ardent pacifist - and his grandfather. And he tells a story of the sacred bonds between fathers and sons.

Available only in Basic 6 & 7.
