Dancing at the Rascal Fair by National Book Award nominee Ivan Doig captures the passion and tenacity of turn-of-the-century immigrants struggling to build new lives amidst Montana's windswept Rockies. The tale unfolds into a contest of the heart between Anna Ramsay and Angus McCaskill-kept apart by obligations-as they and their stormy kin vie to tame the brutal land.

"Magnificent . Dancing at the Rascal Fair establishes its author in the front ranks of contemporary American writers."-Seattle Times

Excellent story. I hated to see it end! It may have been fiction, but it sounded like real life. Everything didn't come wrapped with a bow; the characters became actual people with ordinary lives in extraordinary times.
