In the winter of 1920, a bequest draws Morrie Morgan back to Butte, Montana, with his bride, Grace. But the mansion bestowed by a former boss proves to be less windfall than money pit. And the town, with its polyglot army of miners struggling against the ruthless Anaconda Copper Mining Company, seems on the verge of implosion. These twin dilemmas catapult Morrie into his new career as editorialist for the Thunder, the fledgling union newspaper.

Ivan Doig has been one of my favorite writers. He tried to be funny in this one. He isn't funny.

Morrie Morgan and new wife Grace are back in Butte, living in the Sandison mansion and with Morrie at work on the labor-supportive newspaper, the Thunder. Labor shenanigans drive the plot of this tale with lots of verbal skirmishes from Morrie, the editorial writer.

I like the characters in this now third book with Morrie center stage. This one fell a little short for me with all the old-time news writing, although there?s much to love with the literary references between Morrie and the book-loving library director Sandison. Doig knows and loves the West; so do I.
