Last Bus to Wisdom by Ivan Doig. 2015
Donai Cameron is being raised by his grandmother, the cook at the legendary Double W ranch in Ivan Doig's beloved Two Medicine Country of the Montana Rockies, a landscape that gives full rein to an eleven-year-old's imagination. But when Gram has to have surgery for "female trouble" in the summer of 1951, all she can think to do is to ship Donai off to her sister in faraway Manitowoc, Wisconsin. There Donai is in for a rude surprise: Aunt Kate--bossy, opinionated, argumentative, and tyrannical-- is nothing like her sister. She henpecks her good-natured husband, Herman the German, and Donai can't seem to get on her good side either. After one contretemps too many, Kate packs him back to the authorities in Montana on the next Greyhound. But as it turns out, Donai isn't traveling solo: Herman the German has decided to fly the coop with him. In the immortal American tradition, the pair light out for the territory together meeting a classic Doigian ensemble of characters and having rollickiing misadventures along the way. - Amazon.com
