Pinot & Prose Book Club Selection for March 2016: The Big Sky by A.B. Guthrie

TheBigSky coverPublisher’s Summary:  The Big Sky is a 1947 Western novel by A. B. Guthrie, Jr..  For Wallace Stegner it is “the best” of the six novels in Guthrie’s sequence dealing with the Oregon Trail and the development of Montana from 1830, the time of the Mountain Men, to “the cattle empire of the 1880s to the near present.” The first three books of the six in the chronological sequence (but not in the sequence of publishing) — The Big Sky, The Way West, and Fair Land, Fair Land—are in themselves a complete trilogy, starting in the 1830 and ending in the 1870s.

Enjoy the book then come join your fellow retirees for a discussion on Wednesday, March 23, at 11:30 a.m. at Walter Mitty’s Restaurant, then stay for lunch!
