Tough, Willing, and Able: Tales of a Montana Family

by

Tough, Willing, and Able: Tales of a Montana Family Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Tough, Willing, and Able, Lois Haaglund tells with simple honesty of growing up in a logging family in Clinton, Montana. In describing the personal struggles of her family, the Flansburgs, Haaglund shows us strong individuals whose combined courage sustains them through the hardships of the Great Depression and beyond. The memoir begins with the accident that disabled the author's father in the 1920s and takes us back and forth through time with tales of joy, tragedy, humor, and love.

Review:

"I don't think I've ever come across anything that approaches [Haaglund's] honesty in rendering early twentieth century Montana ranch life in all its courage and brutality and day-to-day difficulties. She writes about love and pain without sentimentality, and what an accomplishment that is." Mary Clearman Blew, author of All But the Waltz: Essays on a Montana Family

Review:

"I found Lois Haaglund's Tough, Willing and Able engrossing, told in a voice which rings with authenticity. It's first rate regional story telling." William Kittredge, editor of The Last Best Place: A Montana Anthology
