Recommended for: anyone.
Read in September, 2010 — I own a copy

Doig has mixed reviews with me but after a few pages I knew this was one of his better ones. Excellent writing with good conversation, skillful use of flashbacks that add to the story, suspense, great description and sense of place and time, good continuity with Dancing at the Rascal Fair and good character development with some little twists you don't see coming. Well researched and exellent use of history blending into the story. (I learned several things that I both should or were unlike to have known. An excellent story of the American West and Montana but considerably beyond regional fiction.
