A haunting, magnificently written memoir by Ivan Doig about growing up in the American West   Ivan Doig grew up in the rugged wilderness of western Montana among the sheepherders and denizens of small-town saloons and valley ranches. What he deciphers from his past with piercing clarity is not only a raw sense of land and how it shapes us but also of the ties to our mothers and fathers, to those who love us, and our inextricable connection to those who shaped our values in our search for intimacy, independence, love, and family. A powerfully told story, This House of Sky is at once especially American and universal in its ability to awaken a longing for an explicable past.

4.0 This House of Sky: Landscapes of a Western Mind
Doig's memoir of growing up out West is resonant and pure. His voice is singular, his prose glowing. Doig's mother died when he was 6 and he and his father made a life and a living on the ranches of Montana. A uniquely American story well-told. Highly recommended.
