Set in the vast and unforgiving prairie of eastern Montana from to In Open Spaces is the compelling story of the Arbuckle brothersGeorgeA rising baseball star who mysteriously drowns in the riverJackA World War I veteran who abandons his family o. Here is the Arbuckle family from 1916 46 Whew I couldn t put it down Each character is carved and the combination becomes dynamic Sad and filled with tragedy and yet such STRENGTH Very rarely do you get life in the country farm ranch etc away from towns and cities this well honed It s a flavor and pattern that is nearly and completely NOT understood in the me me me world of 2019 And that s why I cherish such honesty in fiction in print It s pure So little is any longer There is always some relative or subjective judgment But in this Montana community it s far far real than just feelings and theories As real as a dust decade As real as death in young tragic and accidental ways As easy as core purpose connection to land soil and a determination for fusing nurture from with it So many secrets kept Sometimes necessary so that the whole can function Sometimes protective to this closeness of ranch purposes Sometimes just easier to conceal for individual power Constance and every present physical work FIRST No days offLoved it I can only imagine how these brothers feelings and resentments stormed but at the same time MADE them It s something that is nearly lost now Because there is no commonly held North Star of right wrong rules but just a floating kind of personal amorality sliding scale Always centered on a me me me weight and having little or nothing at all to do with parental dictates to life jobs living location itself or ultimate work outcomes Nor is there guilt of any kind for obscuring or rejecting family onus of reuired patterns needed for a son or daughter as in the past That s nearly entirely gone and disdained when it does occur from what I can observe IMHO Certainly it is has been understood as valid for the great majority of homo sapiens history And still central to many cultures as a life fixture upon which all are reuired to hang their hats Fabulous read Highly recommend this particular and precise look into this Montana experience from an era when the men who stuck were honed and tested And the women as purposed and yet as complex in ambiguities also choices for their fulfillment as the men
