Work Song by Ivan Doig

Work Song is set in 1919 Butte, Montana and brings back Morrie Morgan (from Ivan Doig's The Whistling Season). Morrie arrives in Butte as the Anaconda Copper Mining Co. is extracting the world's largest known deposit of copper ore. Butte is a city of men who have come from all over the world to work the mines. The Anaconda Company will do anything to keep them from unionizing. Morrie has an attractive widow for a landlady, a job working for a mysterious and feared librarian, friendships with miners, and two Anaconda goons who suspect him of being up to no good. Work Song has received mostly positive reviews with BookPage saying, "Rather than blowing you off the page, Doig's writing has a settling effect; as in, you settle comfortably into your chair, confident you'll be enjoying every bit of his breathtaking storytelling prowess."
