Description
 

Cant cook but doesnt bite. So begins the ad offering the services of an A-1 housekeeper that draws the attention of widower Oliver Milliron in the fall of 1909. And so also begins the unforgettable season that deposits the noncooking, nonbiting, ever-whistling Rose Llewellyn and her font-of-knowledge brother, Morris Morgan, in Marias Coulee, Montana. When the schoolmarm runs off with an itinerant preacher, Morris is pressed into service, setting the stage for the several kinds of educationnone of them of the textbook varietyMorris and Rose will bring to Oliver, his three sons, and the rambunctious students in the regions one-room schoolhouse. A paean to a vanished way of life and the eccentric individuals and idiosyncratic institutions that made it fertile, The Whistling Season is Ivan Doig at his evocative best. nbsp; nbsp
