A highly acclaimed collection of short stories set in the great outdoors of New England, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of 'The Shipping News' and 'Brokeback Mountain'.
In the far-flung settlements of New England, life resolves around hunting. On the high, wooded hillsides there are deer to be stalked; upriver there are quiet pools of trout, grouse to be shot and traplines to be laid for fur. But the old ways are threatened and the community faces inevitable change.
Whether they're out-of-towners who think country life is improving, or natives who know that it isn't, the men and women of these stories are all searching for something better. These are people who dream useless dreams, and go on dreaming whatever the disappointments.
Tough, tender and irresistibly humorous, Heart Songs takes the reader on a trail through the great outdoors to the innermost places of the heart.
