Publisher's Summary

National Book Award finalist Ivan Doig had only a vague memory of his mother until he discovered a cache of her letters. They revealed a passionate, can-do woman who loved the lilting rhythm of words. A moving prequel to his acclaimed memoir This House of Sky, Doig’s Heart Earth highlights his childhood before his mother’s death and eloquently captures the texture of the American West, the fortunes of a family, and one woman’s indomitable spirit.

The Mother....

This one REALLY tugs at your heart strings. I really hated for this one to end.

Beautifully Written

I have read this book and also listened to the audiobook. Both readings were magical. Mr. Doig paints a beautiful picture.
