More About The Montana Trilogy by Ivan Doig
From the celebrated and uniquely American author Ivan Doig--an unforgettable portrait of the western United States--his stunning Montana Trilogy: English Creek; Dancing at the Rascal Fair; and Ride With Me, Mariah Montana, now available in a boxed set. "Here is the real Montana, the real West, through the eyes of a real writer." --Wallace Stegner Covering the first century of Montana's statehood from 1889 to 1989, Ivan Doig's Montana Trilogy follows the McCaskill family and their alluring Two Medicine country along the hem of the northern Rockies. Doig first recounts the events of a Two Medicine country summer in English Creek, as fourteen-year-old Jick McCaskill comes of age. Through Jick's eyes we see his friends and family at turning points and discover Jick's own connection to the land, to history, and to the deep-fathomed mysteries of one's kin and one's self. The central volume in Doig's acclaimed trilogy, Dancing at the Rascal Fair, explores the American experience at the turn of the century, a passionate portrayal of the immigrants who dared to try new lives in the imposing Rocky Mountains. Finally, Jick McCaskill returns in Ride With Me, Mariah Montana as the clever and moving voice in this classic encounter with the American road and all the rewards and travails it can bring. Jick faces his family's--and his state's--legacy of loss and perseverance from the vantage point of Montana's centennial in 1989. Doig created one of the most captivating families in American fiction in these prizewinning portraits of time and place--Montana at three pivotal points in the twentieth century. Ivan Doig is "a presiding figure in the literature of the American West" (The New York Times Book Review) and will be canonized as such.
