Ivan Doig is such a good writer that this non-plot story *still* keeps you interested in all the unusual things that happen on the road: the buffalo-Winnebago tussle, the baloney express gang, and the surpise ending.
I loved Doig's description of bison:
"A buffalo up close appears to be two animals pieced together -- the front of a shaggy ox and the rear of a donkey. There is even what seems to be a seam where the hairy first part meets the hairless rear half."
Having said all that, though, there really isn't much of a plot to this one. So, if you haven't read Dancing at the Rascal Fair, read that one, not this.
