by Ed Cole

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Born in the Dust Bowl, Pinky Wollerman migrates to the foothills of California's central valley to become a bachelor cattle rancher. The isolation of his hard-working ranch life in the 1950s leads his neighbors to view him with suspicion. However, despite his social awkwardness, Pinky nourishes friendships with misfits, helping him share his love of wide open spaces. Seeking adventure, Pinky travels to the Australian Outback where he falls in love for the first time in his life, while unaware that he is suspected of murder in California. Pinky's story is an ode to expansiveness, the mystery and hope of the heart in love, mystical places, and the beauty of open space on two continents—empty, but timeless and wild.

About the author
Ed Cole lives on his small walnut farm in Northern California. After a lifetime of jobs as disparate as fruit picker, executive officer and walnut farmer, Ed Cole came upon the art and craft of writing and discovered the delight of storytelling. Wending one's way through a good story, he believes, can be as stimulating as searching through vast, wild and ancient places, and both are much like losing oneself within the landscape of love. His enthusiasm for the outside was formed in his childhood, as his parents, ranchers in Oklahoma, escaped the Dust Bowl by becoming Okie fruit tramps, following the fruit as it ripened from Southern California to Washington state, living for the summer in an oiled canvas tent. A lifelong outdoorsman, Ed has hiked and backpacked throughout the western United States, and has backpacked the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mexican border to Washington.
