Book Description

“From the summer of my twelfth year I carry a series of images more vivid and lasting than any others of my boyhood and indelible beyond all attempts the years make to erase or fade them… “ So begins David Hayden’s story of what happened in Montana in 1948. The events of that cataclysmic summer permanently alter twelve-year-old David’s understanding of his family: his father, a small-town sheriff; his remarkably strong mother; David’s uncle Frank, a war hero and respected doctor; and the Haydens’ Sioux housekeeper, Marie Little Soldier, whose revelations turn the family’s life upside down as she relates how Frank has been molesting his female Indian patients. As their story unravels around David, he learns that truth is not what one believes it to be, that power is abused, and that sometimes one has to choose between family loyalty and justice.

The Nation

My favorite novel of 1993.... Utterly mesmerizing.... There's something eminently universal in Watson's ponderings on the human condition, and it's refracted through a nearly perfect eye for character, place and the rhythms of language. Fiction at its finest is sometimes hard to find; "Montana 1948" amply fits the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Plains (lift the carpet!) 28 Nov. 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The other review is by an illiterate jerk who says he would rather be reading science fiction. Let him. Montana 1948 is a very perceptive book about the great plains, child abuse and a family struggling to come to terms with the deep faults of one of their members.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading 16 Aug. 2013

If you liked Richard Ford's Canada you will like this. It covers similar territory and though maybe not quite as strong is definitely worth reading
