Description

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.

Customer Reviews

This House of Sky

As complicated, and yet so simply, Ivan gives more, much more story, in each sentence, than a sentence should be able to give. I have to reread sometimes, because I know in the next lines I have missed something. I found pure enjoyment, and connection, in every part of this, his life, which he has shared so generously. Don't miss it. The strength of each character comes through with a stirring and endearing warmth, even those who are less than endearing, but still part of the memory that was once his alone. I call him Ivan. He let me in. He made me feel like part of his family.
