Dealer Notes
First edition, signed by the author on the title-page. The American writer Ivan Doig (1939-2015) was born in White Sulphur Springs, Montana and grew up along the Rocky Mountain front, where he worked as a ranch hand and farm worker. He was educated at Northwestern University (earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism) and the University of Washington (where he was awarded a doctorate in 1969). He worked as a journalist and editor while embarking upon a series of acclaimed books set in the West, which earned him the soubriquet ‘The Dean of Western Writers’.

The English Creek, the first of Doig’s novels to be set in Montana, was the first title to be published in the ‘Two Medicine Trilogy’ (although, chronologically, it is the second in the series), which spans the history of the McCaskill family in the fictitious Two Medicine country during the century from 1889 to 1989.
