This Space for Messages presents a fictional postcard album that tells the story of one man's search for a mysterious great-grandmother thought to have been a Cherokee Indian.
Over the years, the fictional Daniel Coltreuter and his family saved picture postcards documenting their attempt to learn more about the family matriarch. Readers accompany Daniel and his family on their travels through a land of mists.
Daniel's search is brought to life by Alan Whiteside's creative photos and Mary Whiteside's imaginative text. Their collaboration integrates photography and fiction to immerse readers in a borderland of imagination.
