I enjoy all of Ivan Doig's writings. He know his material and has a depth to his narrative.

Bucking the Sun is the story of the Duff family, homesteaders driven from the Montana bottomland to work on one of the New Deal's most audacious projects---the damming of the Missouri River. Through the story of each family member--a wrathful father, a mettlesome mother, and three very different sons and the memorable women they marry, Doig conveys a sense of time and place that is at once epic in scope and rich in detail.
