Description
In this final novel of the Montana trilogy, Jick McCaskill, the witty, unforgettable narrator of English Creek, returns to take us along on a rambling road trip through the state during its 1989 centennial, and through the history of the McCaskill family. Jick's daughter Mariah, a photographer, has roped him into chauffeuring in his Winnebago as she and her ornery ex-husband, columnist Riley Wright, are dispatched by their newspaper to various locales to dig up stories of the "real Montana." Just as the centennial is a cause for reflection as well as jubilation, the travels of this trio bring on encounters with the past and "memory storms" that inspire reconsiderations of the heart. One of our favorite writers here at Daedalus, Doig was variously a ranch hand, newspaperman, and magazine editor, as well as the author of This House of Sky (a finalist for the National Book Award for Nonfiction) and a number of rich, almost mythic novels about the history of Montana. "Doig's prose is so muscular and sculpted, so simple and purposeful," said Henry Kaisor in the Chicago Sun-Times, "that I can think only of Edward Hoagland and Wallace Stegner as Doig's equals."

"An extravagant celebration filled with devotion, and with passion for its locale, its people, and their history."—Washington Post

"65-year-old Jick McCaskill, his photographer daughter Mariah, and her newspaper columnist ex-husband Riley Wright tour the Treasure State in Jick's Winnebago. While Riley writes on-the-scene dispatches and Mariah takes photos of the places they visit, Jick, the narrator, recounts the state's—and his family's—good and bad times. A lengthy picaresque with innumerable well-crafted vignettes, this leisurely novel could easily serve as a tour guide of Montana's historic places. As the miles go by, Riley and Mariah again fall in and out of love, and Jick, a widower, unexpectedly finds a new mate."—Library Journal
