Thankfully the love story in this novel didn‘t overwhelm the character and setting development, which is excellent! Beautiful writing. Pic in WY mountain stream is apropos of the story, which covers a large swath of WY and MT. (P.S. I love Butte, MT, home to MC.)

My MT buy yesterday! I am trying not to speed thru it, so I‘m alternating it with another. So far I‘m engaged with the writing. 😁

Set in the forbidding wildlands of Montana and spanning over sixty years across the beginning of the twentieth century, American Copper tells a story both breathtakingly intimate and vast in scope. Addressing the infinite complexities of race, class, gender, and cultural imperialism, it brings the American West vividly to life. Beautiful, lyrical, tough, and heart-breaking, you‘ll remember this book long after you‘ve turned the last page.

Evelynne Lowery is the daughter of a copper baron; William Black Kettle is the great-great grandson of Chief Black Kettle, whose people were slaughtered at Sand Creek (true event) & Zion, a lonely orphan living by his fists. Class, race, grief shape their relationships with each other for good & bad

Started this beauty several nights ago. The lives of the 3 main characters--Evelynne Lowry, a ruthless copper baron's daughter; Zion a giant of a man roaming the plains,moving from job to rodeo to job, and William Black Kettle, a descendent of Chief Black Kettle, are starting to intertwine.

What next? Choices, choices. One literary fiction, one genre fiction, one book of essays. My vacation reads. 😊
