English Creek by Ivan Doig

English Creek by Ivan Doig Purchase:

    Part of Ivan Doig’s acclaimed Montana trilogy, English Creek revolves around Jick McCaskill, a 14-year-old growing up in 1930s Montana. This incandescent coming-of-age tale dramatizes the climatic events of one summer that inevitably mark Jick’s awakening from childhood to adulthood. Through his eyes we see those nearest and dearest to him at a turning point – “where all four of our lives made their bend” – and discover along with him his own connection to the land, to history, and to the deep-fathomed mysteries of one’s kin and one’s self.
