The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig
The Whistling Season

Oofie, January 1, 2013

An exquisitely crafted story weaving historical occurrences and issues from early 19th century West (eastern Montana) into a motherless family of boys and their father as they encounter a couple (housekeeper and eventual school teacher) who change their lives forever. Funny, heart wrenching, social commentary, coming of age, adventures, characters you will never forget, and an amazing use of vocabulary. Not to mention a book steeped in the vastness of the high plains and culture which shapes its inhabitants. LOVED this book!!!!!
